A person must attain the age of thirty years on the date of nomination for election of president, the new draft constitution has said.

The Constitutional Review Commission on Friday released the new draft constitution as The Gambia moved ever closer to getting a new constitution.

If approved, The Gambia’s political and socio-economic future will witness a major transformation, as among the many propositions are term limit and absolute majority.

On the issue of president, the new draft constitution says a person must be a citizen of The Gambia and has ‘on the date of nomination for election of president attained the age of thirty years’.

The new draft constitution also espouses a candidate either hold an undergraduate degree with five years work experience or a high school certificate with twelve years work experience.
