Growing tension in Senegal comes as protests are on the rise with upcoming elections.
The current president is planning to run again or potentially take office without fair elections.
Protesters gathered in the streets of the capital to support a new presidential candidate.
Protestors also expressed their fight for justice for fair elections.
Often in times of political unrest, protests, and tension violence can erupt.
Police have already taken to the streets to halt the protests.
We at the Europe Peace Foundation believe that a peaceful society maintains fair elections.
A society of peace and prosperity follows a democratic structure.
