The opposition Gambia Democratic Congress GDC is one year old.
The party came third in the last Presidential election and secured 5 seats in the recent National Assembly election. ‘ “That is a very good standing for a party that has just come into being. We are the only party that paid One Million Dalasi to be registered in this country,” said Momodou M5 Jallow, the PRO of the party.
Mr Jallow said the GDC is also the only party which has taken practical steps to address the needs of the people even before it comes in to power.
”Our leader Mamma Kandeh has provided milling machines, money and many other things for communities around the country.
And we are doing this even before we take office,” he said.
Asked to comment on the NRP’s denial of Mr Kandeh’s allegation that the party’s votes were added to that of the UDP in Sandu, Mr Jallow said his party leader will not make wild allegations without basing them on something solid. “But the NRP themselves said they will do their own investigation.
I am encouraging them to find out for themselves,” he said.
