Senegal panel suggests delayed polls be held in June to end crisis

28/2/2024 6:44
        Senegal's national dialogue commission will propose a delayed presidential election be held on June 2 and recommend President Macky Sall remain in office until his successor is sworn in, commission member Ndiawar Paye said on Tuesday.
        
        The West African nation, set to become an oil and gas producer by the end of the year, has been thrown into an unprecedented political crisis after Sall postponed the election initially scheduled for Feb. 25.
        
        The date proposal follows two days of dialogue organised by Sall as a way to ease tensions. His and parliament's failed bid to postpone the Feb. 25 poll by 10 months sparked unrest and warnings of democratic backsliding in one of coup-hit West Africa's more stable democracies.
        
        The recommendation will be sent to Sall who will make the final decision, Paye told Reuters.
        
        Speaking by phone, he said it was not known if Sall would accept the recommendation, but his decision could come on Tuesday or Wednesday.
