Togo's ruling party has won 62 of 91 seats in parliamentary elections, provisional results showed Sunday, allowing the ruling family to maintain its decades-long grip on power.

The west African nation's constitutional court must verify the results for them to become final. The closest opposition party was the Let's Save Togo coalition with 19 seats, the results broadcast on state television by the electoral commission showed.
