1928 Dahomeyan Administrative Council election

Administrative Council elections were held in Dahomey in 1928.

Electoral system

Three members of the Administrative Council were elected from single-member constituencies; Abomey, Ouidah and Porto-Novo. However, the franchise was extremely restricted.


In 1927 the La Voix newspaper was established by political activists in Dahomey. It supported anti-colonial candidates in the elections.


The candidates supported by La Voix won in all three constituencies; Pierre Johnson was re-elected in Ouidah, whilst the pro-French candidates were defeated in the other two constituencies.
