Gambian ruling party filed a petition with the Supreme Court

The ruling party of The Gambia’s longtime leader Yahya Jammeh on Tuesday filed a petition with the Supreme Court asking it to nullify the recent presidential election result.
The petition, seen by AFP, said the country’s Independent Electoral Commission had violated the law and added that opposition leader Adama Barrow was “not duly elected or returned as president, and that the said election was void”.
The ruling Alliance for Patriotic Reorientation and Construction said it was not present when the IEC issued a recount on December 5, claimed there were irregularities in the process and alleged voter intimidation.
The petition comes as a quartet of west African leaders try to persuade Jammeh to respect the election result and leave office after 22 years.
