Senegal’s parliament has voted to delay the presidential election to December 15, in a vote that took place after opposition lawmakers were forcibly removed from the chamber as they debated President Macky Sall’s earlier decision to delay the election.


It will be recalled; Sall announced on Saturday that the election, which was scheduled for February 25, will be postponed.


However, Parliamentary backing came late on Monday when 105 MPs in the 165-seat assembly voted in favour of the measure.


Meanwhile Sall has said previously he has no plans to extend his term, but protesters are skeptical.
