DAKAR (Reuters) – West Africa’s main economic and political bloc ECOWAS on Tuesday urged Senegalese politicians to urgently take measures to re-establish an electoral calendar in line with the constitution after parliament delayed the Feb. 25 presidential vote to December.

The bloc added in a statement that it was following the situation with concern, and called on both politicians and the public to help promote peace.
