At least six of the country’s opposition parties will today meet to start discussing the possibility of forming an alliance to remove President Adama Barrow.

According to reliable sources, the talks started last week at the Sea View hotel with the Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC), Citizens’ Alliance (CA) and All People’s Party (APP) attending.


However, The Standard has been reliably informed that today’s meeting will be attended by the National Unity Party (NUP), All People’s Party, Gambia Democratic Congress, Citizens’ Alliance, Alliance for National Reorientation and Development (ANRD), Gambia Moral Congress (GMC) and Gambia For All (GFA).

Our sources further said they are yet to confirm the attendance of PDOIS and UDP, even though both have been written to.

“But as far as this initiative is concerned, none of the opposition parties is excluded from this alliance because all of them have a common objective which is to rescue the country from the current situation. The parties believe that the opposition should put aside their differences if there is any and join as one force to remove President Barrow,” our source added.
