Is Senegal heading for political turmoil? | Inside Story



Senegal's President, Macky Sall, made a surprise announcement – indefinitely postponing elections scheduled for later this month.
He cited controversy surrounding the disqualification of some presidential candidates.
The opposition has accused Sall of trying to cling to power and protests have taken place in the capital, Dakar.
Senegal is often viewed as the continent's most stable democracy.
And a rare pillar of stability in West Africa, where its neighbours have faced coups and civil wars.
Sall says he's not going to run for a third term.
But with no new date for the presidential election, what's next for Senegal? Presenter: Nastasya Tay Guests:
