In November 2006, a month after announcing he would direct his followers to support opposition leader Idrissa Seck, his followers came into conflict with local police, and his compound was raided.

    African Independence Party – Renewal

    African Independence Party (in French: Parti Africain de l'Indépendance) is a political party in Senegal, which was led by Majhmoud Diop. At the 1972 congress of the original African Independence Party in Senegal, the former general secretary, Majhmoud Diop, was expelled. In 1976, in the context of rapproachment from the side of the government, Diop was welcomed to return from exile. Rapidly he gathered his followers and formed a 'Provisional Committee for Renewal of PAI'. Amongst his aides were Baba Ndiaye and Bara Goudiaby. Effectively this group started function as a separate party, calling itself PAI. Generally it became known as PAI-Rénovation (Renewal), distinguishing it from the original PAI (which was called PAI-Sénégal). In an attempt to move away from the one party system, the National Assembly of Senegal adopted a law on July 9, 1975, which would give way to a three party system. The law identified that three distinct ideological tendencies would be represented in the political life of the country: liberal and democratic, socialist and democratic and Marxist-Leninist. The governing UPS was accorded the role as the Social Democratic party and the main opposition PDS was

    Senegalese Popular Bloc

    The Senegalese Popular Bloc (in French: Bloc Populaire Sénégalais) held its constitutive congress in Dakar February 23-25 1957. BPS was the result of the merger of the Senegalese Democratic Bloc (BDS) of Léopold Sédar Senghor, Senegalese Democratic Union (UDS), Casamancian Autonomous Movement (MAC) and a fraction of the Senegalese Popular Movement (MPS) led by Abdolaye Thiaw. The merger was however already in effect since August 1956. The congress elected Senghor as its political director and Mamadou Dia as the general secretary. On January 11 the same year BPS organized a meeting in Dakar, launching the African Convention. The Convention was intended to evolve into an all-AOF party. The launching of the Convention was preceded by failed efforts of unity between BPS and the African Democratic Rally (RDA). Senghor wanted the Convention to fill the role of a party corresponding to the Indépendents d'Outre-Mer parliamentary fraction that he belonged to. In 1958 the African Convention and the African Socialist Movement merged to form the Party of African Regroupment (PRA). As a result of this merger BPS merged with the Senegalese section of MSA, Senegalese Party of Socialist Action

The congress of the General Union of Senegalese Students Probationary Teachers in Europe held in April 1975 provoked a split on behalf of the students of PAI.

On March 29 Kane and his followers joined the legal PAI. LD founded the monthly magazine Vérité. LD was recognized as a legal political party on July 9, 1981. After legalization it started publishing Fagaru. In the late 1970s, LD started advocating the unification of the Marxist left in Senegal to a unitary party (they proposed the name Parti Sénégalais du Travail).

PIT emerged out of the Senegalese branch of the African Independence Party (PAI).

The general secretary, Majhmoud Diop, and Tidiane Baïdy Ly went into exile in Guinea. In 1963 at the 23rd plenary session of the Central Committee of PAI a group of party cadres, including Babacar Niang and Tidiane Baïdy Ly, were expelled form the party, accused of "anti-party fractional activity, right-wing opportunist tendencies" (Momsarew, April 1964). In the December 1 1963 elections PAI joined the Senegalese Democracy and Unity bloc. Whereas many young cadres of the clandestine PAI went to study at the Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow, one section were sent to Cuba to receive training in guerilla warfare. A group of 25 PAI guerillas entered eastern Senegal in 1965 trying to launch armed struggle against the government. The guerillas were, however,
