The Prime Minister of Senegal was the head of government of Senegal. The Prime Minister was appointed by the President of Senegal, who is directly elected for a seven-year term. The Prime Minister, in turn, appointed the Senegalese cabinet, after consultation with the President. On 14 May 2019, the post was abolished.[1]

The following is a list of Prime Ministers of Senegal, since the country gained independence from France in 1960.

Future of post[edit]

On 6 April 2019, after being reappointed by President Macky Sall, Prime Minister Mohammed Dionne announced that President Sall had tasked him with enacting various government reforms, including the elimination of the job of Prime Minister. Sall's goal was to remove the "intermediary level" of Prime Minister to allow the President to take a more hands-on approach to governing.[2]
