 Contemporary Senegalese Politics
In the 1960s, Senghor's main political opponents were either internationally recognized intellectuals such as Cheikh Anta Diop and Abdoulaye Ly, or core activists including Mamadou Dia, Majemouth Diop, Seydou Cissokho, etc., some of whom fought against the French colonizer for decades.
As a consequence of all this, the average Senegalese joined the political opposition, the teachers, and the students who were the main challenging forces to Senghor' government since the early 1960s, to show strong disappointment to Diouf and to demand rapid changes.
All observers of Senegalese contemporary politics agree that Diouf's lost to Abdoulaye Wade during the 2000 Presidential election as well as that of the Socialist Party during the parliamentary elections a year later, were the logical results of all these transformations.

 Political Corruption: challenges and options
Most political systems include formal rules and procedures meant to restrain the exercise of political power and to safeguard human and political rights, but the formal establishment and existence of institutions of horizontal accountability does not in itself mean that they are efficient.
Political economy is most commonly used to refer to interdisciplinary studies that draw on economics, law and political science in order to understand how political institutions, the political environment and capitalism influence each other.
Political parties often lack favourable conditions and incentives for accountable and transparent party financing, and may be dependent upon local political "barons".

 ISHR Senegal - Annual Report 2001
Since the political alternation after the presidential elections of February-March 2000, we have noticed a decline of civil and political rights on the one hand and the economic, social and cultural rights on the other hand.
Therefore, in spite of the position of some political parties that want to replace it by another organ like an independent national commission for election known as CENI in Benin, Niger, ONEL should be maintained and reinforced because hitherto, it has been of great satisfaction owing to its impartiality and efficiency.
It is necessary to impose a unique list because there are at least 63 political Parties in Senegal and there will be a great mess if ever a least half of them decided to apply for the local elections planned for April 2002.

 afrol News - Money, tactics derail Mauritania's transition debate
Five political parties out of Mauritania's "eight big" party grouping have taken an initiative to form a new movement with one single programme and, if necessary, drawing up common lists at the upcoming polls.
This situation also explains the lack of coordination as Mauritania's political leaders are searching for a mode to finance political parties to challenge the government, and the absence of common steps to sensitise voters regarding the upcoming constitutional referendum, in spite of the many dialogue channels created since the coup on 3 August last year.
The dialogue over party funding has been left "at the discretion" of the recipients, in line with a united proposal by the parties after the coup.
