Benin's former ruler makes a comeback
Monday 25 March 1996
Cotonou - Benin's constitutional court yesterday named the ex-dictator Mathieu Kerekou the winner of last week's presidential election. It said he won 52.49 per cent of the votes, while the incumbent president, Nicephore Soglo, received 47.51 per cent. Mr Kerekou came to power in a 1972 coup and declared the country a Marxist-Leninist state. He was forced to relinquish power in 1990 after a popular revolt. AP
