ECOWAS Worried Over Presidential Elections Postponement In Senegal

The Commission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has expressed concern over the decision of the Senegaless Authorities to postpone the presidential elections scheduled to take place on 25 February 2024.

In a statement issued on Saturday, February 3, 2024, the ECOWAS Commission expressed worry over the circumstances that led to the postponement of the elections and appealed to the competent authorities to expedite the various processes in order to set a new date for the elections.

The Commission further urged the entire political class to prioritise dialogue and collaboration for transparent, inclusive, and credible elections.

The ECOWAS Commission saluted President Macky Sall for upholding his earlier decision not to run for another term and encouraged him to continue to defend and protect Senegal’s long-standing democratic tradition.

“The Commission will remain seized of the situation”, the statement said.

Senegal’s President Macky Sall has indefinitely postponed the presidential election, which was originally scheduled to take place on February 25, due to a dispute over the candidate list.

This decision has been met with rejection from opposition leaders and has raised concerns both domestically and internationally.

The postponement has led to calls for dialogue and an expedited process to set a new date for the election.
