Political parties in Senegal have been urged by the United Nations Secretary-General to pave the way for transparent, credible and peaceful elections.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Ban Ki-moon said he is concerned about the upsurge of tensions in the West African country ahead of the presidential elections scheduled for 26 February.

The Secretary-General is warning against the use of violence in the pursuit of political objectives.

Mr. Ban stressed the need for the authorities to act in a manner that preserves Senegal's democratic traditions.
