Senegal President Macky Sall has announced that he will step down as the country’s leader on April 2, but still unclear when elections will be held to elect his successor.

In a televised interview, Sall, said the date of the elections will depend on the planned national dialogue that is set to begin next Monday, which includes civil society groups, political parties and candidates.

Sall, has been under pressure to announce an election date since attempting to delay it earlier this month and wanted to postpone the elections to December so that disputes over the eligibility of other candidates could be resolved.

Meanwhile, the country’s top court, claimed that the delay was unconstitutional, and called for the election to be held as soon as possible.
