ISSOUF SANOGO/AFP/Getty Images(DAKAR) -- Months after a presidential election, the citizens of Senegal are to choose representatives for the 150-seat Parliament, according to English.news.cn.

There was a low turnout in Sunday's poll and the Interior Minister of Senegal, Mbaye Ndiaye, urged people to vote.

The President, Macky Sall who was elected in March said, "I invite citizens to go vote en masse. It's necessary for more people to vote, because it will give more credibility to the future National Assembly."
