Ruling by Senegal's highest court blocks jailed opposition leader Sonko from running for president

  • Senegal's highest court overturned a decision that would have reinstated detained opposition leader Ousmane Sonko to the voter rolls, effectively barring his candidacy for president.
  • Sonko's case seeking his reinstatement was dismissed by a West African regional court on the same day. Sonko had been hospitalized and returned to jail after a hunger strike.
  • Sonko's political party was dissolved, his voter registration canceled, and he was convicted of corrupting youth in what his followers believe are politically motivated actions to derail his candidacy.
