Campaigning starts today, Wednesday, March 15th and Gambians are voting for new National Assembly members on April 6th, 2017.

Hon. Fabakary Tombong Jatta called on the APRC militants and every other Gambian to try to maintain peace and stability during the election period saying Gambia is a single family nation.

“We heading to elections, let us maintain peace and stability throughout the election. Gambia is a single family state. The corner stone of any development is peace and stability. I urge the APRC to abide by the electoral laws, avoid insulting and use of foul words” he said.

Hon Jatta was speaking on Tuesday as he presides over the last sitting of the National Assembly ending the five years mandate.

According to him, we have a new Gambia and everyone should embrace the change and collectively work towards national development. He stated that he will continue to contribute his quota to national development and called on every Gambian to do so.

“I will be a Parliamentarian for life. I will sincerely continue to do my best towards national development. I will continue to contribute to the development of this nation even without been a National Assembly member. The Gambia belongs to all of us. So, let us work towards nation building” he noted.

Hon. Jatta then congratulated President Barrow and the new government and assured them of his fullest support.
