Finally, JAMMEH shocks the world ahead of ADAMA BARROW's inauguration on JANUARY 19

Finally, JAMMEH shocks the world ahead of ADAMA BARROW's inauguration on JANUARY 19 Yayah Jammeh

Gambia’s outgoing President Yayah Jammeh will not step down when his mandate ends on January 18 in spite of his electoral defeat. This was revealed by the Gambian Ministry of Information on Thursday.

The autocrat, who ruled the small West African nation for 22 years, will remain in office until the Supreme Court decides on a petition filed by Jammeh.

According to the statement, Jammeh is challenging the result of the December 1 presidential election.

President-elect. Adama Barrow, a former real estate agent, who was little known before he announced his candidacy, meanwhile reiterated he is planning to take office on January 19, as scheduled. 

Earlier, Gambia’s current dysfunctional Supreme Court adjourned hearing Jammeh’s petition till January 16 since only one of a required minimum of five judges was present.

Experts, however, believe it will be highly unlikely that four additional judges will be present on Monday.

This is because the Supreme Court has not been operational since Jammeh fired several of the court’s judges in mid-2016.

All other eligible Court of Appeal judges left the country after the December election.

However, observers fear that delays to the planned handover of power could lead to violence.
