    (May 29, 1926- )
    Born in Kébémer, Senegal
    Graduated from Sorbonne with doctorate in law and economics (1970)
    Founded Senegalese Democratic Party (1974)
    Member of Senegalese National Assembly (1978-1980)
    President of Senegal (April 1, 2000- )
    Some people claimed that he was born earlier than his official birth date, as the record-keeping at that time wasn’t very reliable.
    He, his wife, and two members of his party were charged with involvement of the murder of Constitutional Council Vice-President Babacar Sèye on May (October 1, 1993).
    He was criticized for corruption, reduction of civil liberties, and nepotism.
    It is rumored that he is a Freemason.
    He spent lots of money on a huge statue outside Dakar called the African Renaissance Monument, prompting widespread criticism.
    He compared that same statue to Jesus Christ, causing criticism from Christian bishops that he publicly denies Christ’s divinity (December 29, 2009).
    When the statue was completed in 2010, he stated that 35% of its revenues go to him.
    It was rumored he was preparing to have his son Karim succeed him as president.
    He has been married to his wife for at least 47 years.
    His election ended four decades of Socialist rule in Senegal.
    His daughter-in-law died of an illness in Paris (April 10, 2009).
    He eventually apologized for his remarks comparing the African Renaissance Monument to Christ (December 31, 2009).
    He allowed the survivors of the 2010 Haiti Earthquake to restart their lives in Senegal, where they’ll be given land depending on how many will come (January 17, 2010).
    He negotiated settlements to end crises in Madagascar and Mauritania.
