Senegalese President Macky Sall sworn is sworn in for second term+++ South Africa’s president son Andile Ramaphosa on the spotlight for allegedly being involved in a corrupt business deal+++ Germany takes over the presidency of UN Security Council
Macky Sall has secured a solid majority of votes, winning a second term without the need for a run-off vote. The four losing challengers disputed the result, but said they would not challenge him in court.
In an exclusive interview President Macky Sall spoke with DW about Senegal's partnership with Germany. He bridled at the thought that his country could be seen as anything less than 100 percent democratic.
On Sunday, Senegal will elect a new president. Five candidates are running, each with a specific program. Former president Abdoulaye Wade called for protests against the polls after his son was banned from running.
What does Senegal have in common with Nigeria regarding elections? Very little if anything. The former is regarded as a stable democracy, the latter is not. But experts say Abuja and Dakar can learn from each other.
