After deadly protests, Senegal’s Macky Sall rules out a third term.


Senegal’s President Macky Sall has announced that he will not seek reelection for a third time in the coming election, putting an end to years of political ambiguity that last month’s deadly opposition rallies were sparked by.
Sall asserted on Monday that Senegal’s constitution would have permitted his candidacy despite having already been chosen for a second term in 2019 in a speech streamed live on his official Facebook page.
Sall stated in his address that “there has been much speculation and commentary on my potential candidacy in this election.” It was my second and final tenure as of the 2019 term.

Despite having the constitutional right to do so, he declared, “My decision, carefully considered… is not to run as a candidate in the upcoming election on February 25, 2024.”
