Five candidates will contest the vote, including incumbent Macky Sall

Analysts say the elimination of two main rivals of Macky Sall, former minister Karim Wade and ex -Dakar mayor, Khalifa Sall should pave the way for an easy win for the current president.



Outlining his roadmap to supporters during his first campaign outing in Dakar, opposition candidate, Issa Sall, promised to strengthen border security, and peace in the crisis-hit Casamance region.

“Issa is an ideal candidate, he is the ideal candidate for us, that’s why we chose him. He is dynamic, He is not mentioned in any political or judicial scandal,” said another.
