According to the Independent Electoral Commission, Adama Barrow, who is running for the People’s National Party, won in 14 districts, while former vice president and leader of the opposition United Democratic Party (UDP), Ousainou Darboe, did so in three districts.

For now, Gambia has 53 electoral districts, in which over 962,000 voters were called to vote for six candidates, including Barrow and Darboe, his former political mentor.

In 1,500 polling stations, Gambians had to deposit a transparent glass sphere on Saturday in one of the six special urns. To win presidential elections, you only need a simple majority, which is why a single electoral round is being conducted, local press reported.

All candidates presented their programs to revive domestic economy hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
