Prof. Ndiaw Diouf, vice-president of the constitutional council, has just confirmed the compliance of the law on sponsorship with the constitution of Senegal, despite the injunction of the ECOWAS court of justice to abolish it, because it violates the principle of free participation in elections“. This is the opinion of Abib Diop, Pastef Switzerland coordinator. According to him, this same council could be consulted in the coming months to rule on a possible 3rd term.

Judicial system…

I would like to remind the vice president that national sovereignty belongs to the people, who exercise it through the means described in the constitution of Senegal. “I also recall that the members of the highest body of the judicial system are appointed by the head of the executive.“, Says Abib Diop.

Nominations…

According to the coordinator of Pastef Switzerland, in general, article 8 of organic law 2017-11 of January 17, 2017, on the organization of the functioning of the superior council of the judiciary, provides that the President of the Republic must chair meetings on appointments of magistrates.

Independence…

So many points of attachment, liable to alter the independence of the judiciary and by extension the principles of neutrality and impartiality which should be its foundations. Here is therefore a crucial project, which will be one of Pastef’s priorities, once in power.“, He adds.
