Meanwhile, the NPP Administrative Secretary, Mambanyick Njie has denied reports that there was tension at the congress or the president or any executive member attempted to interfere with the process.

“There was no interference. It is a normal process in all political parties that when going to elections if they realize that there are so many aspirants the party leader will call the conflicting parties and try to talk to them to make sure that others are willing to give up their candidacy to allow some flow in the congress otherwise it will be chaotic. So, there was no such misunderstanding because the likes of Lamin Cham and others went to election and won, so it was very democratic,” he told The Standard.
