People in Senegal are waiting for the provisional results of the presidential election held on Sunday.

Violence broke out during the campaign as some people protested against the decision of incumbent President Abdoulaye Wade to seek a third term.

United Nations Secretary-General had urged Senegalese leader to refrain from inciting violence in order to ensure peaceful, transparent and credible elections.

To find out about the elections, Derrick Mbatha spoke on the line to the Senegalese capital Dakar, with Toussaint Kongo-Doudou the Director of the United Nations Information Centre there.
