NEWSROOM (ADV) – Disappointed by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Court of Justice, former Dakar mayor Khalifa Sall has chosen to rally Rewmi Idrissa Seck.

The court rejected Friday the request made by the former mayor to be on the list of candidates for the presidential election of February 24.

The former mayor of the capital asked the Court to order his inclusion on the list of candidates for the presidential election and to affirm that his candidacy, was valid.

The Court dismissed the application, which means that Khalifa Sall lost all hope to take part in the upcoming presidential election.
