Supreme Court to hear UDP’s case on Motion Ex-Parte Thursday


The Supreme Court of The Gambia is set to hear the UDP’s Motion which seeks a review of the apex courts December 28th ruling, dismissing its elections petition.

The opposition UDP recently filed a Motion Ex-Parte at the Supreme Court of The Gambia seeking a review of the court’s ruling on its election petition case, which challenged the results and outcome of the 4th December polls that president Barrow won by a resounding landslide.

Supreme Court of The Gambia struck out the electoral petition filed by the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) on the grounds that its filing contravenes Rule 11 of the Election Petition process.

UDP was additionally ordered to pay a cost of D100,000  to the first respondent.

A source who wishes to stay anonymous confirmed the development to the Alkamba Times saying: “What I can confirmed is that the panel of Supreme Court judges will hear the case in Banjul tommorow”.
