The Standard has been reliably informed that the members of the United Democratic Party in CRR North are on the verge of petitioning the results of the recent chairperson election in the Kuntaur Area Council which the IEC declared to have been won by the Gambia Democratic Congress, GDC.
Kebba Nyancho Sanneh, who spoke to The Standard said the UDP team in the area has very solid proof that the seat was actually won by the UDP and not the GDC as announced by the IEC.
“I am not mandated to talk on behalf the UDP but as a citizen, I can confirm that there are plans to file a petition on this matter,” he told The Standard on the phone from CRR.
Sanneh said the UDP hierarchy has been informed of this and in the coming days, more details will come on the matter.
According to the IEC, the Kuntaur Area Council chairmanship was won by Saikou Jawara of the GDC who polled 6308 against UDP’s Jobarteh who polled 6265 while the NRP’s Mustapha Jobe polled 4593.
