Gambians vote for new parliament amid opposition boycott
Gambians are going to the polls on Thursday to elect their members of parliament.
Thursday’s polls are the fourth National Assembly Election, since President Yayah Jammeh came to power 17 years ago.
Jammeh himself won the country’s presidential election last year for a fourth term.
As expected, his ruling APRC party is fielding the bulk of the candidates in an election, which is being boycotted by some opposition Parties.
They claimed that the Independent Election Commission has failed to provide a level playing field for the elections to take place.
A Gambian Journalist in the capital, Banjul told WADR on Wednesday that public interest in the election is low.
