"Senegal's highest court ruled just after midnight on Monday that the West African country's aging leader was eligible to run for a third term in next month's election, rejecting appeals filed by the opposition and eliminating the last legal avenue for challenging President Abdoulaye Wade's candidacy. The court also rejected the appeal of music icon Youssou Ndour, stating that his candidacy was invalidated because he did not file enough valid signatures." (01/29/12)
