    The current leader of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade, wants a third term, saying the constitution's two-year limit does not apply to him, but the opposition want him out.

    The prospects of the voters is gloomy, as many believe there is a real danger of an uprising by larger numbers who want more from their politicians, not just the removal of an ageing president.

    Voters agree the president should go, but they differ on how this should happen; whether it be by ballot box, or by a continuation of protests.
