President of Senegal Maky Sall
In a Declaration dated July 02, 2023, the President of Senegal Maky Sall has just announced his decision not to stand for re-election in the presidential elections of 2024, and consequently not to seek a third presidential term.
On this occasion, the Coordination Council
1°- Acknowledges and welcomes this salutary decision.
2°- Emphasizes that this decision is the result of the bravery and fighting spirit of the Senegalese people, in particular its youth, who have paid the highest price (through blood and tears). As a result, Maky Sall was forced, under popular pressure, to renounce his manifestly anti-popular and anti-constitutional adventure (third term), and this constitutes a resounding victory for the Senegalese people and for democratic and patriotic international opinion.
3°- Pays homage to the Senegalese people and bows down to the memory of the brave fighters for freedom, patriotism and panaficanism, who fell on the field of honor under the murderous bullets of Maky Sall’s thugs.
In any case, the Coordinating Council declares that, since the massacre last June, there is now this flow of blood from Senegalese youth which separates the Senegalese people from Maky Sall and makes him completely disqualified from governing Senegal.
Consequently, and as a reminder of the President’s Address to President Maky Sall dated June 2, 2023, the Council requests:
1°-Immediately reinstate the opposition politician Ousmane SONKO to his full civil rights, and annul all illegal judicial decisions against him.
-2°- To account to the people for the blood crimes committed during his term of office (the 2021 and 2023 massacres), before handing over the reins of office.
