img-20161117-wa0197The Candidate of the Gambia’s united opposition Coalition has denied incumbent President Yahya Jammeh fifth term in office. Adama Barrow has won the December 1st presidential elections by a slight margin. Based on votes compiled at spot counting centers across the country, it is clear that Mr. Barrow defeated Yahya Jammeh by 21, 114 votes. The Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission Alieu Momarr Njai is yet to announce the results in both the Kanifing Municipality and West Coast Region where Mr. Barrow made significant gains. Adama Barrow has swept the polls in most of the regions in the country. Yahya Jammeh is yet to concede defeat even though he is privy to the spot counting results.
