APRC vow to contest all Assembly seats

By Omar Bah Seedy Njie, a nominated Member of Parliament and former Information Minister and APRC press secretary, has revealed that the former ruling party will contest all the 53 constituencies in the April 6th national assembly election. Njie made this remark in an interview with state TV. Mr Njie who flew in a few weeks ago from accompanying his party leader ex-president Jammeh is full of confidence that the APRC will bounce back. He called on party supporters to stay calm and continue to support the party, noting that the APRC still remains, and would also participate in all the upcoming elections, the parliamentary and local government elections. Asked why the APRC didn’t turnout at the IEC’s three days intensive training for political parties on the upcoming national assembly election at the TANGO conference hall, Njie said it was due to miscommunication. “Yes, we received the letter since on the 15th February and it was because of some miscommunication we could not send a representative at the meeting. But that doesn’t mean we are not going to contest the assembly election,” he stressed. Currently the APRC hold the majority in the assembly but will face two or more opponents in the Coalition, GDC and perhaps new comers in the April poll.]]>
