According to ezinereligion, in 2007, Benin had an estimated population of over 8 million people, composed of multiple ethnic groups including Fon, Yoruba and Bariba. The official language was French, but several other languages were also spoken. The economy was largely based on agriculture and industry, as well as exports of cotton and cashew nuts. In terms of foreign relations, Benin had close ties with its neighbors in the region such as Nigeria and Togo. It also maintained diplomatic relations with several other countries such as the United States, China and France. Politically, Benin was a parliamentary democracy led by President Thomas Boni Yayi since 2006 until his resignation in 2016. Following his resignation Patrice Talon became president in 2016 and is still in power today.

Benin. According to CountryAAH, Porto-Novo is the capital city of Benin. The Kauri forces of an emerging Benin, an alliance of about twenty parties supporting the new President Boni Yayi, received 35 of Parliament’s 83 seats in the March 31 election. A smaller alliance around former President Nicéphore Soglo was given 20 seats. The former military dictatorship and the one-party Marxist state of Benin are often cited as a democratic example in Africa, but the arrangements surrounding the elections have often been flawed. So this time too, when the election has to be postponed for a week due to poor preparation.
