Gambia: Opposition Leader still cries foul over presidential polls

Leaders of the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP) and Gambia Moral Congress (GMC) alliance have highlighted what they called the ubiquitous presence of armed security personnel, senior local government officials such as regional governors, district chiefs and alkalolu, among others, as some of the reasons that cast an enormous doubt and imposed a pernicious influence on the just-concluded presidential election.
