Opposition candidates vote in mock election to protest poll delay in Senegal

A civil society organisation in Senegal engaged in a mock election on Sunday to protest against the postponed election scheduled for 25 February

Senegalese presidential candidates on Sunday (25 February) cast their ballots in a symbolic vote organised by a civil society organisation to denounce the postponement of the presidential election.

The country’s election was scheduled for Sunday (25 February).

The presidential candidates who took part slipped their ballot papers into a box bearing the words “RIP 25 February”.

“We cannot accept, with the stroke of a pen, being deprived of what is essential to us, that is to say, our freedom and democracy, and above all our ability to elect our leaders,” said presidential candidate and former Dakar Mayor Khalifa Sall.

Some young Senegalese protesters defied a ban on their demonstration and gathered on the streets of Dakar to condemn the postponement.
