The Senegalese parliament, by an absolute majority, approved the draft amendment to the constitution, which includes the abolition of the post of prime minister.

The Senegalese radio reported on Sunday that during a public meeting in the Senegalese capital of Dakar under the chairmanship of parliament speaker Mostafa Nias, parliament approved a draft law amending the constitution after 124 deputies voted in favor of 7 out of 138 deputies.

Senegal’s Justice Minister Malik Salel said the new constitutional amendment would allow the country’s president to directly contact the levels of public policy implementation, monitoring and evaluation and would be able to save about 193 billion CFA francs in the next four years.

Since the independence from France, the prime minister has held 13 people, most notably Abdou Diouf, who took office from February 1970 to December 1980, and current Prime Minister Mahammed Abdallah Dionne, who has been in office since 2014.
