Chairman, Gambian Electoral Commission flees country.

The Chairman of the Gambian Electoral Commission ALIEU MOMAR NJAI has fled the country following threats to his life.

MOMAR NJAI had declared ADAMA BARROW the winner of the December 1 presidential election, but President YAHYA JAMMEH has refused to relinquish power, challenging the election results in court.

MODOU NJAI, the Chairman’s nephew, told journalists that his uncle had left the country because of the threats.

Security forces had earlier occupied the office of the electoral commission and denied staff access for weeks, but have since left the premises.
