Thursday, 05 December 2013 22:53(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).
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.
