COUNT DOWN TO NOMINATION

The field appears to be narrowing down as we come close to nomination of presidential candidates. IEC started by making claims that eight would be contestants have picked nomination forms from the Independent Electoral Commission. The number of contestants has dropped to four, namely the incumbent, Yahya Jammeh, Mr Adama Barrow, Hon. Mamma Kandeh and Dr Isatou Touray. Nominations will take place from 7 to 10 November.

Foroyaa would continue to follow the development. Gambians will know for sure who would be out there to seek for their consent in occupying the highest office of the land.

Will the opposition put up only one candidate as demanded by the vast majority in The Gambia? The clock is ticking. Time will tell and Foroyaa will record the outcome of the nomination process.
