1925 Dahomeyan Administrative Council election

Administrative Council elections were held in Dahomey for the first time in 1925.


The Administrative Council was established in 1894, Although it had no elected members, the Chamber of Commerce selected some of the councillors. However, three elected seats were introduced in 1925.

Electoral system

Three constituencies were created for the elections, Abomey, Ouidah and Porto-Novo. The franchise was extremely restricted, with only 470 people registered to vote.


Two of the three seats were won by candidates supported by the French colonial authorities. However, Pierre Johnson was elected in Ouidah despite opposition from the French.
