On Monday, 5 November 2018, Khalifa Ababacar SALL, represented by his lawyers, submitted to the Supreme Court an action for annulment of misuse of powers by Decree 2018-1701 of 31 August 2018 on the withdrawal of the mayor of the city of Dakar.
Announced at the publication of the decree, Khalifa Ababacar SALL took this decision in principle to denounce the manifest violation of the General Code of Local Authorities by the President of the Republic and to protect local authorities from the current steps of the current regime .
Today, more than ever, he remains determined to continue the struggle to uphold the law and will continue to use all means of redress to force the existing power to submit to the law in the hope that the Senegalese Justice will be independent and impartial.
The fact that you chose Mrs Soham EL WARDINI as mayor, against the government's desire to occupy the city of Dakar, is the perfect proof that the appeal against the illegal denial is purely a struggle for principle.
From now on, Khalifa Ababacar SALL dedicates all of its energy to the presidential elections of February 24, 2019.
