British Queen celebrates


The UK government has made a further statement following the announcement of Senegal's delayed presidential elections.

A Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office spokesperson said:

The United Kingdom continues to follow events in Senegal closely. Given Senegal’s longstanding democratic traditions, we join with The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in urging all parties to respect the decision of the Constitutional Council on 15 February, and call for transparent, inclusive, and credible elections to be organised as quickly as possible.

We urge all parties to show restraint, to maintain calm and the rule of law, and to respect the fundamental freedoms of the Senegalese people. We express our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives in recent protests. Photo by Initsogan, Wikimedia commons.
