The Supreme Court Dismisses UDP’s Petition Case Against President Barrow

The Supreme Court Dismisses UDP’s Petition Case Against President Barrow

Today UDP’S petition case against President Barrow  continued at the supreme court of The Gambia, led by Justice Hassan B Jallow. During the sittings it was said that UDP failed to comply with Rule 11 of the Elections Petition Rules (notice and security) and therefore the lead Justice dismissed the petition and ordered an award cost of D100,000 against them, in favour of President Adama Barrow.

That rule (11 of the Elections Petition Rules) says that when a petitioner files a petition, the petitioner is required to file a notice showing the proposed security, nature of the security and must attach the petition itself within five days of the filing of the petition.

UDP was the only party to file a petition after the December 4th Elections and today the supreme court has struck out their petition.

This has officially made President Adama Barrow the Re-elected President to serve for the next five year ahead of his sworn in date; the 19th of January 2022.

The UDP party leader, ANM Ousainou Darboe wrote on his social media page after the news of the  Supreme Court’s dismissal of their Petition Against President Barrow.

“We have not lost anything because the petition was not Dismissed based on merit but a mere technicality”
