Senegal: Background and U.S. Relations
Alexis Arieff (au)
Senegal, a small, semi-arid nation on West Africa's Atlantic coast, has long been viewed as one of the region's most stable democracies. Political trends under former President Abdoulaye Wade (in office 2000-2012) raised concerns among analysts and policymakers over possible democratic "backsliding," particularly in connection with Wade's attempt to win a third term in office in elections held on Feb. 26, 2012. Popular anger over Wade's candidacy sparked demonstrations and rioting, leading analysts to question Senegal's stability and the potential for a free and fair vote. Yet voting was peaceful, and Wade lost to opposition candidate (and former protí©gí©) Macky Sall in a run-off vote held on March 25. Wade did not contest the results, and. Sall was sworn in on April 2. The election results and Wade's concession were internationally hailed as a victory for democracy in an often troubled region. The State Dept. refers to U.S.-Senegalese relations as "excellent."
