Adama Barrow re-elected The Gambia’s president

Adama Barrow has been re-elected as the President of the Republic of Gambia.


Barrow garnered 53 percent of the vote, according to results released by the electoral commission late on Sunday.


His main challenger Ousainou Darboe won 27.7 percent.

Electoral commission chairman Alieu Momarr Njai declared Barrow the winner, announcing the final results to journalists hours after rival candidates had challenged partial results that gave the incumbent a commanding lead.

Crowds of Barrow’s supporters marched through the streets of the capital Banjul to a din of horns and danced on a vast esplanade.


However, before the full results were announced, three of Barrow’s rivals had rejected partial results.


“At this stage, we reject the results announced so far,” Darboe and two other candidates said in a joint statement earlier. “All actions are on table.”
