The Congress of the Democratic Renaissance (CRD) met on Friday, March 05, 2021, to express itself on the explosive situation in which is currently Senegal. Former Prime Minister Abdoul Mbaye and his comrades denounced the restriction of freedoms and democratic retreat under the regime of Macky Sall.
The CRD, meeting this Friday at the headquarters of Tekki, deplores the escalation of violence that cost the lives of two people on Thursday, March 4. The Congress deeply regrets the first loss of life and extends its deepest condolences to the families of the disappeared. After making the surprising and disappointing political oath to reduce the opposition to its simplest expression, the President of the Republic has reduced democracy, civil liberties, and the rule of law to their lowest expression, said Abdoul Mbaye in a statement to the press.
Not content to monitor, contain and punish, he says, he is relentless in his Machiavellian enterprise of all-out neutralizations, exceeding the constitutional limits of his power, dispossessing citizens of their fundamental rights and once again betraying popular will and sovereignty.
According to the leader of the Alliance for Citizenship and Work, Senegalese people discover daily, the ruses by which President Macky Sall excels terribly in neutralizing the election of which he seeks to monopolize the calendar to make it his exclusive property, thus showing his contempt for the elementary rules of representative democracy, participatory and deliberative.

There is the LD/Debout which is represented by Pope Sarr, the Republic of Values, presided by Thierno Alassane Sall former minister.
