The West Coast Region has an interesting mix as well. Coalition constituent party, APRC will file candidates for all Foni Wards except for Sintet Ward and Bantanjang Ward which will be filled by the National People’s Party (NPP).

APRC will also file candidates in Kunkujang, Jabang, and Lamin wards, while NPP will file candidates for the rest of the wards in the West Coast Region.

The North Bank Region will be swept in candidature for the NPP. The National People’s party will file candidates for all the wards in the North Bank Region.
