The President of the Republic of Senegal, in the process of running for a second term, did not want to take a clear position on the question relating to his candidacy for the next presidential election. Faced with the journalist this Tuesday, December 31, 2019, following his message to the nation, the Head of State meets the Senegalese people in 2024.
The President of the Republic of Senegal, Macky Sall, gave a crucial detail on the reasons for his silence when faced with the question of his candidacy for the next presidential elections. The leader of the Alliance For the Republic (APR) does not want to give a definitive answer because, to declare not being a candidate, is to provoke implosion in his party with positioning wars to occupy his place; making the decision to come forward is fueling a debate that has spilled enough ink and saliva.
For him, the answer is “neither yes nor no” when faced with questions from journalists. The president wants to stop speculation about the next ballot when he is only in the first year of his new term. The answer will be known in 2024, so at the right time.
For his succession at the head of the state, Macky Sall was firm in predicting that we are not in a kingdom, the decision belongs to the sovereign people.
