“Marie Sock joining the race as an independent candidate augurs well for Gambian politics. This will enrich our competitive political landscape. We need more women candidates to come forward and contest for political positions,” the senior political science lecturer at the University of The Gambia tweeted Saturday.

It comes as Sock announced on Saturday she will be joining the race to become the country’s next president.

Gambians will go to the polls in about 16 months to elect a new president. Sock is the first woman to express interest in the job.
