    Benin History
    Next elections (March 2006)
    Source: U.S. Department of State


          The March 2006 election for the presidency should provide some fresh faces to the electorate for consideration. President Kerekou is barred from the 2006 presidential elections under the 1990 constitution due to term and age limits (former president Nicephore Soglo is also barred by age). President Kerekou recently confirmed that he will not attempt to revise the constitution and stand for the 2006 elections. The laws pertaining to the upcoming elections have been passed, though an attempt by the National Assembly to add a residency requirement (thought to target a specific potential candidate) was rejected by the Constitutional Court.
