Senegal President Macky Sall to step down on April 2

SABC News Macky Sall R

Senegal President Macky Sall has said he will stand down on 2 April when his term is due to end, but it is still unclear when elections will be held to elect his successor.

He said the date of the elections will depend on the planned national dialogue that is set to begin on Monday, and which includes civil society groups, political parties and candidates.

“On 2 April 2024 my mission as the head of Senegal comes to an end…I would like this debate to be clearly settled,” he said during a televised interview.

His announcement assuages fears that he was planning to extend his term, amid a political crisis.

Mr Sall has been under pressure to announce an election date since attempting to delay it earlier this month.
