Senegalese National Assembly Dates 2017

Senegalese National Assembly Date: 2 July 2017

Politics in Senegal takes place within the framework of a semi-presidential, democratic republic. The President of Senegal is the head of state and the Prime Minister of Senegal is the head of government.Executive power in Senegal is concentrated in the president's hands.

While legislative power is technically vested in both the government and the parliament, the parliament rarely introduces legislation or votes down legislation proposed by the government. Similarly, although the Judiciary is theoretically independent of the executive and the legislature, the executive branch seems to exert undue control over the judiciary.

Senegal is one of the few African states that has never experienced a coup d'état or exceptionally harsh authoritarianism. Léopold Senghor, the first president after independence, resigned in 1981, handing over the office of president to his Prime Minister, Abdou Diouf. The present president, Macky Sall, was elected in competitive democratic elections in March 2012.

Senegal has a reputation for transparency in government operations. The level of economic corruption that has damaged the development of the economies in other parts of the world is very low. Today Senegal has a democratic political culture, being part of one of the most successful democratic transitions in Africa.

Electoral system of Senegalese

Senegalese presidential elections are organized through a majority system, with run off. The president is elected by universal direct suffrage. The term of office is for seven years, renewable once (the term was reduced to five years in 2001 and changed again to seven years in October 2008). The current Head of State, Macky Sall, has repeatedly reiterated his electoral promise to reduce the term to five years and enforce it immediately, although he was himself elected for a seven year term in 2012.

Senegal’s Parliament has also become unicameral, following the elimination of the Senate, for the second time, in 2012 (it was restored in 2007 before the most recent elimination in 2012). The 2012 elimination of the Senate was declared following the severe flooding that affected the country that year and a vast majority of people expressing their rejection of the need for a second chamber. The current parliament thus consists of the National Assembly, with 150 members elected by universal suffrage for a five-year term. For the first time in the history of this institution, an absolute parity between men and women was instituted during the July 1, 2012 legislative elections.
