Senegal’s prime minister has declared President Macky Sall as winner of Sunday’s presidential election with at least 57 percent of votes, even though the opposition claims preliminary results showed a run-off was unavoidable.
According to Prime Minister Mouhammed Boun Abdallah Dionne, the results compiled by the presidential coalition showed Macky Sall has won enough votes for re-election.
“By compiling the results from the local authorities of Senegal today we can expect a minimum of 57 percent for the candidate, President Macky Sall.
And I would like to congratulate, in the name of the people of Senegal, in the name of the great coalition of the presidential majority, the Benno Bokk Yakaar coalition, our candidate, and I am sure that as soon as tomorrow he will go to work to continue this important work for our country on the path of Emergence,” said Mouhammed Boun Abdallah Dionne, Senegal’s prime minister.
