Gambians are heading to the poll once again to vote for a new National Assembly after three weeks of intensive campaign.
The 53 available seats in parliament will be heavily contested by 238 candidates, a number never registered in the history of this country.
Therefore, it is important that potential voters wisely choose among the candidates who will represent their interests in the lawmaking body.
Despite the historic turnout of the December presidential election, the number of people that registered and failed to vote was scarily high, among the highest in the country’s election history.
To avoid similar high voter apathy in tomorrow’s National Assembly election, The Standard calls on each voter’s card holder to exercise their political rights by voting.
The country has decided in December last year to vote for a new president; it is time, once again, to decide who gets into the National Assembly. So let us all go out and vote for the right candidates.
