Senegalese Macky Sall postpones the presidential elections News

broke down,

The vote was scheduled to take place on February 25.

Senegalese President Macky Sall decided to postpone the presidential elections that were scheduled to take place on February 25.

In a televised address to the nation on Saturday, the president announced that he had abolished the relevant electoral law, due to a dispute over the list of candidates.

There were concerns about the integrity of the vote.

Last month, electoral authorities excluded some opposition members from the list of candidates.

One of the candidates, who was not allowed to participate, asked to postpone the vote. But another party said that stopping the elections temporarily would be what it called an “institutional coup.”

President Sall said he would not run for a third term.
