United Democratic Party will today (13 December) file a case to the Supreme Court in Banjul to challenge the election results.

The party’s leader Ousainou Darboe refused to concede defeat after the nation’s electoral body declared president-elect Adama Barrow as the winner of the December 4 election.

Spokesman for United Democratic Party, Almamy Taal said: “The Executive Committee met Friday and the results are under review by the external lawyers of the party.

“And we depend on their advice for the next steps in the process.”

The Gambian Constitution has given right to any political party which participated in a presidential election but disputed the results to file a case to the Supreme Court within 10 days of the declaration of the results.
