Millions of Senegalese citizens are preparing to head to polling stations across the West African country on Sunday to elect a new president.
More than 6.5 million people have registered to take part in the vote, the first since a 2016 referendum reduced a president’s term in office from seven to five years.
The change means a leader can now only serve a maximum of two five-year terms.
The campaign period, which started on February 4, came to an end on Friday as candidates made last-minute promises in a bid to win over voters. Infrastructure, corruption, and employment are some of the most pressing issues for the electorate before the vote.
The election pits incumbent president Macky Sall against a mixed opposition pool including former prime minister Idrissa Seck, former foreign minister Madické Niang, amongst others.
