I have an experience, proven in the management of the business public of my country. I was Minister, Minister of State Director of Cabinet of the President of the Republic and Prime Minister of Senegal.
At the decentralized level, I was Mayor and Chairman of the County Council. I practiced the institutions ofinside. They operate not by way optimal.
For empiricism pragmatic, I think I have the proposals relevant to the reform and put more on stage with our needs for a better governance democratic.
