Gambia: Supreme Court To Hear Ruling Party's Legal Challenge To Elections

Gambia's supreme court will hear a legal challenge from the ruling party of President Yahya Jammeh to the country's Dec. 1 presidential elections, which he lost to opposition candidate Adama Barrow, Reuters reported Dec 21. Jammeh initially accepted the results of the election but has since backtracked and called for a new vote. The country's supreme court has no sitting justices, so judges from Nigeria and Sierra Leone will reportedly be appointed to hear the challenge. It was never easy to believe that Jammeh, with his reputation for strongman brutality, would step down so easily.
