Dakar, July 3 (APS) – The daily newspapers received on Wednesday by the Senegalese Press Agency (APS) mainly focused on the first hundred days of the new regime in power as well as the start and conduct of the written exams for the general Baccalaureate throughout the national territory.

Having entered service on April 2, the current regime yesterday passed the 100-day mark in power, reports L’As.

”In three months of office, the duo is moving forward like Siamese twins. However, it is necessary to note the preeminence of Prime Minister Ousmane Sonko on certain issues while the head of state seems to be satisfied with his sovereign prerogatives”, writes the newspaper which puts on its front page: ”One hundred days of the new regime: Diomaye under Sonko’s mantle”.

“Diomaye-Sonko, in a state of eclipse”, after three months in power, announces L’Observateur.

”The current Prime Minister was a virulent opponent, almost aggressive. Today in power, Ousmane Sonko has not yet abandoned his warlike tone and his tendency to occupy the center stage. But in doing so, he eclipses the President of the Republic, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, who pales in comparison to him,” writes L’Obs.

”The governance of Diomaye-Sonko: 100 days of clashes”, headlines Bes Bi which reports that “the Diomaye-Sonko regime has completed these 100 symbolic days”.

“100 days often conflicting with different actors and segments of society,” notes the publication, noting that the new regime, “trapped by the many promises, the immense hope, a time that flees, has governed by threats.”

“The Prime Minister is at the front. On all fronts: press, magistrates, National Assemblies among others,” the newspaper mentions.

The daily newspapers also took an interest in the overall progress of the 2024 Baccalaureate exams across the entire national territory.

“Baccalaureate 2024: start of the exams without major hitches”, headlines Sud Quotidien, specifying that this assurance comes from the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Dr Abdourahmane Diouf.

”At the end of a tour of four examination centres in Dakar, he stressed that the first round of the general baccalaureate exams took place normally throughout the country”, the newspaper reported.

The daily newspaper emphasizes that it “also announced that candidates who were unable to take the baccalaureate due to civil status problems will be able to take the resit session next October.”

“General baccalaureate: Minister Abdourahmane Diouf shows his satisfaction,” Le Soleil headlines.

The national daily stresses that Minister Abdourahmane Diouf, on tour yesterday in several examination centres in Dakar, “said he was satisfied with the process before announcing major changes compared to the replacement session which will take place in October.”

WalfQuotidien reports that “of the 159,487 candidates in the running, 98% responded according to Minister Abdourahmane Diouf who wants a success rate of over 50%.” Abdourahmane Diouf is counting on 90,000 admissions,” is the title of Walf.

L’Info indicates that “a 98% attendance rate” was recorded for the 2024 Baccalaureate at the start yesterday in many examination centers.” “A start under good auspices, according to the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Dr. Abdourahmane Diouf,” notes the newspaper.

The same newspaper also announced that ”64 baccalaureate candidates were excluded in Kaolack, for having defied the ban on carrying telephones, by the president of Jury 1506 of the center of the new high school of Kaolack, Amath Ndiaye”.

“64 candidates excluded for carrying mobile phones”, Libération poster.
