Senegal's outgoing president congratulates opposition candidate on win


Senegal's outgoing President Macky Sall congratulated opposition candidate Bassirou Diomaye Faye as his successor on Monday, hailing "a victory for Senegalese democracy" after Faye's rival conceded the race.

After governing coalition candidate Amadou Ba recognised Faye's first-round win and offered his congratulations, Sall, who did not stand after wins in 2012 and 2019, said he "salutes the smooth running of the election" and "congratulates the winner, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, who the poll trends show as winning."
