The announcement of the candidacy of Mr. Abdoulaye Wade for mayor of Dakar, ahead of the local elections, caused a bombshell in the Senegalese political field.

A statement that in addition to having surprised more than one, reacted Babacar Gaye, head of the Liberal and Democrats Party / And Suqali (Pld / As), also former head of the PDS.

“It’s not because I’m not a member of the“ Wallu Senegal ”coalition. I consider that President Abdoulaye Wade is an icon in politics that no one should induce in things that make him small, ”he declared on RFM morning.

According to Babacar Gaye, the dimension of the former head of state goes beyond a candidacy for mayor of Dakar. “Those who want to apply are not responsible. We must not lead President Abdoulaye Wade to controversy in this country. It looks more like deception because those who want to apply seek to hide behind him, ”he added.
