Gambia Leader Yahya Jammeh Rejects Election Result by passionate88: 1:19am On Dec 10, 2016



Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has rejected the result of the election which he lost earlier this month.
In an announcement on state TV, he said the electoral process had suffered "unacceptable abnormalities" and he called for a fresh vote.
Mr Jammeh, who came to power in a coup in 1994, had suffered a surprise defeat to Adama Barrow, who won more than 45% of the vote.
Mr Jammeh initially accepted the result, surprising his critics.
"After a thorough investigation, I have decided to reject the outcome of the recent election," Mr Jammeh said on Friday.
"I lament serious and unacceptable abnormalities which have reportedly transpired during the electoral process.
"I recommend fresh and transparent elections which will be officiated by a god-fearing and independent electoral commission."According to the electoral commission, Mr Barrow won 263,515 votes (45.5%) in the election on 1 December, while President Jammeh took 212,099 (36.7%). A third-party candidate, Mama Kandeh, won 102,969 (17.8%).
Mr Barrow, a property developer, is due to take office in late January. After his win, Mr Barrow hailed a "new Gambia".
The Gambia is the smallest country on mainland Africa, with a population of fewer than two million. Tourism has become its fastest-growing sector.

Yes, especially the change in mama Peace bank account or the one Allison disappears with, sorry I meant the one Dasuki leads that touched the lives of Obanikoro, Fayose and others.

That is a typical African leader for you. They prefer to die in office to protect themselves from being exposed!

He needs to be examined for likely substance abuse or dementia .
Why would a leader be in "dreamland" for a whole week only to get up from his slumber talking gibberish?

I think he changed his mind when the opposition candidate admitted that he will jail him when he takes over next year. His refusal of the results is an act of self preservation.

The population of Banjul the capital city of Gambia is just 35,000 which is not up to the population of Unilag... Yaya Jammeh should not start a Civil War that will wipe out the country in one week
