Yayha Jammeh Will No Longer Be Recognised As President Of The Gambia After His Term Ends

The African Union has said it will no longer recognise The Gambia’s President Yahya Jammeh as the country’s leader from 18th January, 2017 next Thursday, when his term ends.

Adama Barrow, who won the recent presidential vote which Jammeh refuses to accept, said he believed he would be sworn in next week. Nigerian leader has flown to Banjul to try to broker a deal but the latest talks appear to have failed. Mr.Jammeh has filed a case at the country’s Supreme Court asking election results for December 1st be cancelled. The Supreme Court has however been unable to hear the case due to a challenge of a shortage of judges hence can only do so in May, 2017, and Mr Jammeh says he will not step down until then. Economic Community of West African Countries (Ecowas) and African Union (AU) warns of “serious consequences” if Mr Jammeh’s refuses to give up power could cause a crisis.

There are growing fears that the uncertainty could cause a refugee exodus. The grouping has warned that it would consider removing him using military force if he refuses.
