QUESTION OF THE DAY

WHY IS FOROYAA HESITATING TO PUBLISH THE REJOINDER SENT BY THE UDP TOCLARIFY CLAIMS BY THE STANDARD NEWSPAPER THAT UDP HAS ENDORSED THE INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE?

Foroyaa has indeed received a rejoinder from the UDP secretariat making clarificationthat Mr Adama Barrow is currently their presidential candidate and they have not endorsed any other candidate so far but have welcomed Dr Isatou Touray to the political field. This rejoinder if not sent to The Standard Newspaper should be sent there since it is the newspaper that published the story. If it is alsready sent to The Standard, it should be published by the paper as a matter of principle of the ethics of journalism.

Foroyaa hesitates to publish articles which pit opposition forces against each other. We hope that The Standard will publish the rejoinder. If they fail to do so then Foroyaa will be obliged to publish it so that it will not censor what the UDP  wants to convey to the public to clarify what it considers to be a distortion of its position.
