He was the candidate of the Senegalese People's Liberal Movement (MLPS). Senghor is the grandson of the first Senegalese president, Leopold Sedar Senghor.[2]

Senghor was born in Djilor.[1] In the 2007 election, Senghor came in 14th place with about 0.24% of the vote.[3]

Two months after the election, he was reported to have fled to the United States after being involved in a bad-cheque case involving 40 million West African CFA francs (some $80,000).[4]
