The National Peoples Party held their first ever selection of candidates for the forthcoming Mayoral and Chairmanship election, on Wednesday the 8th of March 2023 at various regions and municipalities across the country.
The following candidates are selected through primaries ornegotiations between the running candidates:
Banjul: Ebou Faye
KMC: Bakary Badgie
LRR: Sarja Sarr
CRR South: Sulayman Sawaneh
CRR North: Saikou Jawara
URR: Muhamed Ceesay
NBR: Papa Tunkara.
The national executive committee and the party secretariat are appealing for calm, to give democracy a chance to prevail in every aspect of the forthcoming selection process. Our party is borne out of the basic tenets of democracy and this was manifested in our last congress; where party delegates have queued throughout the night to elect the party executive. We will agree to disagree but the bigger picture is the NPP, the progressive peoples movement party.
The selection for the chairmanship candidate in West Coast is inconclusive as there was a tie between two candidates: Mr.Ahmed Gitteh and Mr. Seedy Ceesay, as a result the national executive committee of NPP will convene a runoff scheduled on Tuesday the 14th of March 2023 at 12 noon; between Mr. Gitteh and Mr. Ceesay.
