On the day, Gambians would elect 53 National Assembly Members (NAMs) for the 53 constituencies of the country who would comprise the next cohort of parliamentarians of the country

They would be joined by 5 members who would be nominated by President Barrow from whom the speaker of the house would be chosen for a 5-year term.
