Europe and Africa as Partners: A Level Playing Field? In the Interview: Macky Sall, President of Senegal.
After a campaign scarred by violence, voters in Senegal have gone to the polls in legislative elections. The parliamentary vote is seen as a test run for President Macky Sall ahead of the 2019 presidential poll.
According to the electoral commission in Senegal, the country's ruling coalition party will take 125 of 165 seats in parliament. This confirmed an expected landslide for supporters of President Macky Sall.
The Senegalese legislative elections take place on Sunday, with President Macky Sall's coalition facing two strong challengers. The polls are seen as a test for presidential elections slated for 2019.
Five years in office, no more. Having made this promise, Macky Sall was elected Senegalese president in 2012. But his recent referendum on constitutional reform was denounced by critics as a cop-out.
