BAYO 2016 REACTION TO THE JULY 7 , 2015 ELECTION AMENDMENT BILL
I am Hereby Referring to both the Ongoing Political and The Constitutional developments in The Gambia. The passing of the Election Amendment Bill on 7 all in the opposition, Gambians, our friends and the world that Yahya Jammeh will never stop taking us for a joke.
The Amendments are a big mockery and an insulting illustration of politics in our land. Yahya Jammeh and his cronies masquerading as National Assembly Members conducted the bias changes to the bill of election just to strengthen themselves and to help boost their chance of gripping onto power, Period!
And this is the bitter taste of acknowledging and supporting “a soldier without any political education” and also an alarm bell for everybody in the opposition to stand as one, or else continue to witness and experience in full view such barbarisms and catastrophic situations in our political environment...
In the face of this insult and provocation against members of the opposition and Gambians, it is not acceptable that a ‘Pick And Choose’ strategy of Amendment is what our constitutional has now been subjected to. Therefore, I Sheikh Sidia Bayo, the Independent Presidential Candidate of The Gambia in unequivocal terms condemn the inappropriate Amendments to the Bill of Elections.
By the same press release, call for a suspension and an immediate repeal of the passed bill in order to seek a fresh general election reforms and resolution through the approval of a Referendum.
