The National Assembly member for Banjul South has rejected the leadership election of the People Progressive Party.

Fatoumatta Touma Njai lost to Kebba Jallow in the leadership election over the weekend held in Barikama-Ba – which was marred by chaos. 

She secured 2 votes while Kebba E. Jallow secured 92 votes of the delegates.

Speaking at a news conference, MP Njai called for a fresh election, adding she has formed her alternative executive until ‘free and fair election’ was held.

“To this effect, we the undersigned reject the constituted Executive and demand for fresh elections to be held,” she said, adding PPP needs a transitional leader.
