They are also claiming for an order compelling the IEC to produce the list of all voter cards issued in Banjul that were supported by attestation forms issued and endorsed by the Mayor of Banjul,.

The trio are also claiming such further or other orders that the court deems fit to make under the circumstances, according to the order dated 16th September 2021.
