STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING SENEGALESE ELECTIONS
The largest political affiliation in Africa, the Africa Liberal Network, wishes every success to its Senegalese member parties, in the upcoming parliamentary elections on 30 July. Four full ALN member parties (APR-Yaakaar, PDS, PLC/DJ and Rewmi) will be partaking in the first parliamentary elections since 2007, which saw a coalition formed by the PDS to win the majority of the seats.
The ALN believes that these parties are all committed to seeing a better future for every Senegalese citizen, based on the rule of law, the protection of human rights and sound government policies. The ALN trusts that the upcoming elections will take place freely and fairly, allowing every Senegalese voter to cast their vote safely. Irrespective of the outcome, the ALN will continue to support its sister-parties in fostering liberal values, not only in Senegal, but also across the continent.
