Your Vote is Your Choice!

The tabulation of the 2016 Presidential election results from the fifty three constituencies was done correctly.

Furthermore, regional election results were also tabulated correctly from Banjul to Basse Administrative Areas. However, when the total votes per region were being tallied, certain figures were inadvertently transposed. Instead of adding the total number of votes polled by Mr. Adama Barrow in the Basse Administrative Area, the IEC added the total number of ballots cast for Basse Administrative Area to Adama Barrow’s total number of votes thus swelling the number of votes Mr. Barrow polled nationally.

This error was repeated across for the other contesting candidates.

Having noticed this, the error is now corrected and this is the actual result:


Barrow Adama                                                          227, 708 votes

Jammeh, Yahya A.J.J. Sheikh Prof. Alh. Dr.     208, 487 votes

Kandeh, Mamma                                                      89,768 votes

This result which has not changed the status quo was unanimously endorsed by the representatives of the contesting candidates at Election House this morning, 5th December 2016.
