In the crowd were many supporters of Dakar's jailed mayor Khalifa Sall, and of Karim Wade, the son of former Senegalese president Abdoulaye Wade, as well as an up-and-coming opposition leader, Ousmane Sonko.

Protesters also demand for the Minister of Interior, Aly Ngouye Ndiaye, who is in charge of organizing the elections, to leave as he's seen as biased toward the ruling party.
