Why Did The People Vote The Way They Did?


Must Read


One trend that appears very evident is that many Gambians are still willing to cast their votes for political figures. They do not hesitate to state on political platforms the services rendered to them by political figures as justification for assuring them of their votes. They also openly demand for things like cooking utensils, sporting gears and other items.

Hence this trend of political patronage will continue to be a hindrance to the holding of fair and credible elections. The other major hindrance to free, fair and credible elections is the concentration of political leaders on demonizing each other and their parties to rely on fear tactics to dissuade others from voting for them.

A critical mass must rise from fear and patronage to enable the masses to vote on informed choice.
