DAKAR - Senegal President Abdoulaye Wade could win re-election with as little as 25 percent of a first round vote instead of a majority, according to official proposals published in a pro-government newspaper.

The proposal has raised the hackles of Wade's rivals in the typically quiet West African state, who say it will make it easier for Wade to secure victory in next February's election, which pits him against a fractured opposition.
