We have come to congratulate the new President of the National Assembly of Benin and appreciate the very strong message he sent to the Beninese people on the day of his election. We also came to give him the report of our observations of the electoral process. We observed the process and not the April 28 vote. We came to tell him that from June 27 to 28, we are holding our press conference in Paris in front of the international and African press to deliver the conclusions of our work here in Benin. These are the reasons why we came this morning to visit the President of the National Assembly of Benin. There is an important message that we sent to Mr. President. We told him that any profound change in the life of a nation encounters challenges. The example that everyone knows is that of France. The arrival of President Macron has raised a lot of hope in France. Beyond this hope, when he wanted to bring reforms to the life of France, you see that for months he has encountered great opposition never before experienced in France. It is not Benin which obviously wants to bring profound reforms to the lives of populations which would not experience any dispute. We therefore understand what is happening here in Benin, we believe that Beninese democracy is doing well and all this is recorded in this final report that we have. This is normal, there is progress, there are reforms to be made, however, we believe that Benin is doing better. The President appreciated our visit. We will meet in the coming days. He felt that he would take the time to leaf through, understand and read our report, and I believe that we understood each other. »
