Politics

According to the constitution approved by referendum on January 7, 2001 (last amended in 2016), Senegal is a presidential republic. The head of state, supreme holder of executive power, commander-in-chief of the armed forces and chairman of the National Security Council is the president, who is directly elected for 7 years (from 2019 for 5 years) (one-time re-election possible). He determines the guidelines of politics, appoints the prime minister and the other members of the cabinet, can dissolve parliament and has the right to initiate legislation. The representative body, the National Assembly, has 165 members who are elected for five years according to a mixed system of majority and proportional representation. The High Council of Local Authorities acts as the representation of the regions. It has 150 members, 80 of which are indirectly elected and 70 are appointed by the President of the Republic. The constitutional court established in 1992 is responsible for the control of norms.

National symbols

The national flag is in the African colors and corresponds to the flag of the Mali Federation, which fell apart in 1960, without its emblem. The flag was introduced in 1959 and modified after independence in 1960. In design it corresponds to the French tricolor in the colors green, yellow, red, the center of the yellow stripe has a five-pointed green star.

The coat of arms, also in the African colors, was adopted in 1965. The shield is split into red and yellow and shows an upright, golden lion in the red half, a natural-colored carob tree in the yellow and a green wavy bar symbolizing the Senegal Current. A wreath of silver palm branches is wrapped around the shield, held together by a ribbon with the motto “Un peuple, un but, une foi” (One people, one goal, one belief). A five-pointed green star hovers at the apex of the wreath. The gem of the Senegalese national order hangs on a green ribbon under the sign.

The national holiday is April 4th. It commemorates the establishment of the Mali Federation in 1959.

Parties

A multi-party system has been anchored in constitutional law since 1976. The party landscape is highly fragmented and shaped by numerous alliances and lists. Important party political forces are the Benno Bokk Yaakar coalition (BBY; ao Alliance pour la République [APR; founded 2008], Parti Socialiste [PS; emerged in 1976 from the Union Progressiste Sénégalaise], Alliance des Forces du Progrès [AFP; founded in 1999 through a spin-off vom PS]) and the Manko Wattu Senegaal coalition formed in 2016 around the Parti Démocratique Sénégalais (PDS, founded 1974).

Unions

There are several unions, the largest being the Confédération Nationale des Travailleurs Sénégalais (CNTS), the Union Nationale des Syndicats Autonomes du Sénégal (UNSAS) and the Confédération des Syndicats Autonomes du Sénégal (CSA). Check themakeupexplorer to see Trade Unions in Western Africa.

Military

The total strength of the conscription army (two years of service; selectively handled) is around 13,600, that of the paramilitary units (including the gendarmerie) around 5,000 men. The army, divided mainly into three armored battalions and six infantry battalions as well as other combat support units, has around 12,000 soldiers and around 800 each in the air force and navy.

Administration

Senegal is divided into 14 regions (each administered by an appointed governor and an elected regional assembly), which in turn are divided into 45 departments.

Law

The legal system stems on the one hand from French colonial law, and on the other from traditional, increasingly Islamic customs, which vary regionally and are often observed in legal practice to a greater extent than state law. The constitution guarantees an independent judiciary. After independence (1960), many areas of law were re-codified in a unifying manner, in particular the civil and commercial code, land law and the penal code. Commercial and economic law is being harmonized between the French-speaking countries in Africa. In 2004 the death penalty was abolished. For family matters as well as smaller civil, commercial and criminal matters, the departmental courts are responsible in the first instance, for other matters regional courts, these also in general for administrative and tax matters.
