The presidential aspirant of the Citizens’ Alliance Dr. Ismaila Ceesay has reiterated that the party will not endorse any candidate in Saturday’s presidential election.
Dr. Ceesay made this statement following scores of propaganda messages trending online indicating that CA has endorsed a certain political party.
He called on his party stalwarts to uphold peaceful co-existence and let them go out on Saturday to vote in their favourite candidate/party whose political ideology aligns with theirs.
He promised his supporters that the party will issue a statement tomorrow (Friday) to Gambians.
The Citizens’ Alliance was recently involved in a court row with the country’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) following the rejection of their candidacy. The High Court of the Gambia has ruled in favour for the IEC to compensate the party D200,000 dalasis and facilitate their (CA) bid to contest the election by resubmitting the missing nomination numbers in Banjul.
This year marks the beginning of the country’s newest political party to throw their weight in the political race.However, their political bid is being truncated by the IEC. Yet, the CA few days ago announced it will sue IEC for contempt of a court order.
