While the UDP is set to file its case before the Supreme Court today,  the Gambia Democratic Congress GDC which seconded the UDP in rejecting the results of the presidential election has said it will deal with its case separately.

The Independent Electoral Commission declared incumbent Adama Barrow the winner of the December 4th poll last week securing 457, 519 against two major rivals Ousainu Darboe of the UDP who got 238,253, and Mamma Kandeh of the GDC who secured 105,902 votes.

However, the two opposition parties have since rejected the results of the election promising to investigate allegations of irregularities.

As the UDP is set to file its case today, a senior executive member of the GDC told The Standard that “the GDC is not joining UDP in going to the court today [Tuesday]. “We too are mobilising and preparing our own documents and evidence and as soon as we are done with those processes we will let the public know our stance,” our source in the party said. He gave no further details.
