The Church of Senegal Call for Calm in Upcoming Elections

The church of Senegal is concerned about the physical and verbal abuse characterizing the electoral campaign by various political parties leading up to the country’s presidential elections slated to take place on the February 26, 2012 and calls for calm.

In a statement read by Jacques Aimé Sagna, secretary of the Episcopal Conference, the Church of Senegal calls for respect for constitutional law and advocate for strict adherence to the spirit and letter of the Constitution which guarantees national consensus and which ensures good governance, good management of public affairs and peace.

The church also tasked the national electoral body to take all the necessary measures to ensure that voting takes place regularly and that all stakeholders, at all levels, demonstrate a sense of patriotism, a sense of fairness and impartiality without fault, to avoid post-election protests which result in violence with unpredictable consequences.
