Senegal: Wade and the PDS v. Seck

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Senegal, Elections, Politics

Looking to upcoming elections in Senegal [1], Blog Politique du Senegal writes (Fr): “May [Idrissa] Seck [2] bleed the PDS [3] [Senegalese Democratic Party] to death. I certainly won't be complaining. … Wade did not have the political finesse to create an efficient party. His authoritarianism … made him build a monster with a thousand unsynchronized arms. His fear of internal competition caused him to develop a strategy close to Stalin's.”
