Transition government spokesman Halifa Sallah, says there is no coalition alliance formed in the coming elections while warning Gambians to brace up for a big surprise, as the parties which committed itself to effecting a meaningful democratic change, have now parted company ahead of the National Assembly election scheduled for April. Mr. Sallah was speaking during a news conference today. He said political parties which propelled Adama Barrow, into the presidency, have decided to sponsor their own candidates to take part in the upcoming polls. This he said, was in contrast to the coalition’s set aims and objectives.

Mr. Sallah also took a swipe at the Barrow Executive. He said Ministers appointed by Barrow, are taking part in active politics by calling on the electorate to vote for certain candidates handpicked by Ministers, who should be scrutinized by the Legislature in a truly democratic dispensation. Mr. Sallah questioned the rationale behind the recent change—given the lack of separation of powers in the new dispensation. He said it is wrong for Ministers to use their positions to meddle into the activities of the legislature. He noted that it is illogical to see members of the Executive trying to control or dominate the Legislature. This he warns, is not good for Gambia’s much anticipated democratic change.
