The Independent Electoral Commission has issued a statement on Friday suspending the National Convention Party from participating in all national elections.
The Commission’s decision was premised on the fact that the party has held two different congresses which produces two leaders, thus dividing the party.
Gambian parties went to congress in December 2018 electing leaders and reforming their laws and manifestos, an exercise mandatory in the country’s electoral laws.
All the congresses were monitored by the Commission. The NCP held two different congresses dividing them between the leadership of Majanko Samusa and Yahya Sanyang.
The Commission said the party is suspended from participating in all electoral activities in the Gambia.
