Senegal: President Sall to leave office April amid unclear Election Date 

The president of Senegal, Macky Sall, has said he will exit the presidential seat when his term is completed on April 2 despite the fact that his administration is yet to declare a new date for the next presidential election.  

He added, however, that it was unlikely the election of a new president will be completed before then. 

He announced his decision following the Constitutional Council’s verdict last week, which stated that the 10-month deferral of the election was illegal. Originally, the election was to be held on February 25.
