We applaud the efforts of the African Union and Commonwealth Election Observers’ who, inspite of the smear campaign that characterised the countdown to the November 24th Presidential Election critically observed our solemn political process and in the final analysis gave history a fair writing. Their conclusion that the election was free, fair and transparent is indeed an honest accolade as every sober-minded person conscious of the political trend of this country knows that Gambia’s political process is among the most free and transparent in the region.
