Faye Supporters Rally as Senegal Awaits Presidential Poll Outcome

Supporters of opposition candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye have taken to the streets to celebrate his early victories in Senegal’s presidential election, just a week after his release from prison.

Faye’s main rival, from the ruling coalition, former prime minister, Amadou Ba has suggested that a second round of voting will be necessary to determine the winner, as official results are not expected before the end of the week.

Faye has promised voters profound change and a left-wing pan-African presidential program, positioning himself as a candidate for a systemic overhaul in Senegal.

The election, viewed as a beacon of democracy in West Africa, comes after three years of turbulence and a political crisis, with the winner tasked with managing revenues from oil and gas reserves set to start production soon.
