Senegal opposition party sponsoring new candidate Faye after court blocks jailed leader Sonko's bid

  • Senegal's jailed opposition leader Ousmane Sonko's party will sponsor Bassirou Diomaye Faye as a candidate for the February presidential election, due to Sonko being denied sponsorship papers.
  • Faye, the party's No. 2 official, will be sponsored for the election, while Sonko's candidacy will continue. The move aims to challenge the government's strategy and support one of their project's candidates.
  • President Macky Sall will not seek a third term, and Prime Minister Amadou Ba is the ruling party's candidate. Sonko, who placed third in the 2019 election, has accused Sall's government of politically motivated charges.
