Senegal: Ousmane Sonko’s lawyer says “battle is not lost” in overturned trial decision

Senegal's Supreme Court has overturned a ruling that allowed jailed opposition figure Ousmane Sonko to run in the 2024 presidential election. The court ordered a retrial of the case, stating that the earlier decision was irregular. Sonko's lawyers expressed disappointment with the decision and noted that the sponsorship process for the election is nearing its end. The Ministry of the Interior has refused to provide Sonko with official forms to collect sponsorships, arguing that the Ziguinchor judge's decision was not final. Sonko, who has accused President Macky Sall of plotting against him, has been a source of political unrest in Senegal.
