APRC Retains Seat In Constituency By—Election

APRC supporter(JollofNews) – Gambia’s ruling Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction (APRC), retained its seat following the victory of its candidate, Menata Njai, in a by-election held in Kiang West in the Lower River Region (LRR).

According to the results declared by Gambia’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) on Thursday, APRC's candidate, Njai, polled 3703 votes against 509 votes scored by Pa Touray Bajinka, candidate of the opposition National Reconciliation Party (NRP).APRC supporter

The Kiang West constituency National Assembly seat became vacant following the expulsion of Yahya Dibba by president Yahya Jammeh earlier this year after his party said Mr Dibba was found to have conducted himself in a manner that runs contrary to the rules of the APRC, and the party cannot accept such behaviour from its membership.

According to the party, Dibba was expelled in the interest of sanity within the ranks of the APRC party, as well as its support base.

Quoting truth:
..pappier - let's agree to disagree on this one.

..any unbiased write up about the Kiang West election should include the total registered voters as well as the number that voted for APRC and NRP. .
Have a blessed day.


truth,..truth be told, in no way do i question the news worthiness of the material in question. Infact, i was looking 4 those figures in the story. I was glad to find out that u provided the figures, and thats a good thing.

I was merely raising a note of caution. I sympathise with journalist when they rush to publish a story. Many good journalists would rather exclude a material they have not thoroughly double check n triple check. Cus they want no room 4 inaccuracy.

Have a bless day truth.

@pappier - let's agree to disagree on this one.

In my opinion, any unbiased write up about the Kiang West election should include the total registered voters as well as the number that voted for APRC and NRP. Even if the writer only has a space for one sentence. Otherwise, readers will be mislead. Case in point, look at the comments below prior to my adding fact that only 45 percent of registered voters actually voted.

Have a blessed day.

Quoting truth:
Hey Jollofnews,.. You did not think it is important to include .. 9,000 registered voters! ..that ..APRC and NRP combined ..about 45 percent of.. voters! .. Lazy journalists!


Good journalists are precise n straight to the point. Its is like a newspaper. Limited time, limited space 4 an appetising outcome.

That's where u and i come in to add some of our vital comments n viewpoints. So your 9000 figure can be brought up here.

Bear in mind that these editors are not magazine publishers but newspaper. Time n space is very precious. Moreover, we are not paying them to research all the material u want included..

Regarding his statement at the Airport, he was responding to Fatou Camara's revelation on Freedom Radio that he Jammeh wanted to spspenend $100,000 to bring girls from around Africa to his birthday. According to her, she stated to Jammeh that people might talk regarding him spending that amount of money to bring these girls to Gambia and his response was "but it's only a $100,000!"

Garuwalleh!!

Did Yaya Jammeh said on his arrival in banjul that I quote"they said the president is spending over 1 million on his birthday. Is it their fathers 1million I'm spending"?

This is arrogance at it's highest. SMH.

Quoting Fuckyou Radiokankang:
@17,
Rights are not choices, supporting a criminal is not his right, it is his choice, a bad choice indeed which is punishable in any civil world.
Thanks
Radiodiokankang is just the most stupid bastard Gambian in this forum.

The verdict in kiang west bye-election is clear; 55 percent chose not to vote for lack of choice or not wanting to legitimate a process that is already flawed because the iec chairman has no legal mandate to organise elections in The Gambia anymore; 5 percent choose to vote against the APRC meaning that only 40 percent of the registered electorates approved of the APRC mandinka candidate. That therefore questions the legitimacy of the candidate to serve the people of kiang west. 1. The election was organised by a not properly constituted iec as a matter of law;
2. The candidate did not earn the support of the majority of the constituents.

Thanks
