Senegal’s government has set a new date for the presidential election, March 24th, after delaying it due to protests.

The president’s opponents accused him of trying to stay in power longer, but he denies it. This election is important for the country’s stability.

The government also passed a law to forgive certain protest-related crimes, which some people criticize, saying it protects those who hurt protesters.

However, supporters argue it could help free opposition leaders jailed unfairly.

Despite this, some key opposition figures still can’t run.

So, while the election date brings relief, there are still challenges ahead for Senegal’s democracy.
