ECOWAS, of which Senegal is one of the main members, has published a carefully drafted document statement following Sall’s announcement that he “takes note” of the decision to postpone the elections and calls for “dialogue and collaboration for transparent, inclusive and credible elections.” The African Union also expressed concern in a statement calling for elections to be held “as soon as possible”. The US State Department acknowledged “allegations of irregularities,” saying it was “deeply concerned about the disruption to the presidential election schedule.”
