By Baba Sillah Ebrima LS Marenah, the Gambia Moral Congress candidate in Niamina East has filed an objection to the candidature of his opponent Sanna B Ceesay of the United Democratic Party, UDP, claiming that Mr Ceesay is not constitutionally eligible to contest the seat. Mr Marenah in his petition alleged that Mr Sana B Ceesay was not resident in the Gambia during the past twelve months as he had been living in Kenya for the last four years. Mr Marena urged the IEC to revoke the candidature of Mr. Ceesay based on that rule. According to Marenah, his objection was done in line with the constitution and electoral laws of the Gambia which give citizens right to file objection to a candidate. The petition which was obtained by The Standard was also addressed to the Speaker of the House and Chief Justice. The Standard contacted Mr Ceesay for his reaction to the petition but his phone was unreachable.]]>
