in the aftermath of the legislative elections in Senegal, the opposition ensures that it has obtained "a comfortable majority" in the National Assembly, while the presidential camp claims victory . The opposition said on Monday, August 1, having obtained "a comfortable majority" in the National Assembly, shortly after the claim of the victory by the presidential camp of the legislative elections on Sunday in Senegal .
These three deputies, however isolated, can indeed change the absolute majority of the new National Assembly: Macky Sall therefore needs a voice, the opposition of three. If they displayed themselves as opponents of the head of state during the campaign, nothing is nevertheless frozen in a country where electoral transhumance is recurrent.

The verdict of the ballot boxes therefore rebatates the cards on the Senegalese political chessboard with an opposition which rises to power. And the game of alliances was not long in coming. On the opposition side, Lamine Thiam - The National Agent of Wallu Senegal - was clear: these coalitions beat campaign on the same themes as them. "We therefore call them to build up with us to be in the majority together in the National Assembly," he said by stretching their hands.
Discussions are in any case underway within the coalitions of these three deputies to establish the procedure to follow and respond to the tense hands. Thierno Bocoum, spokesperson for an alternative for an assembly of rupture of Thierno Alassane Sall, explains that no final decision has been taken for the moment. "We are from the opposition and we will not join the Macky Sall camp. But that does not mean that we will make an alliance with the other coalitions, ”he specifies.
