The Independent Electoral Commission will conduct by-elections to fill six vacant seats in three Area Councils on Wednesday 24 May 2017, a press release by the IEC stated.

The wards are Old Jeshwang and Tallinding Wards in the Kanifing Municipal Council, Bantanjang Somita and Sukuta Wards in the Brikama Area Council and Galleh Ward in the Jangjanbureh Area Council.

“This is necessitated by the resignation of the erstwhile councilors of the aforementioned wards who resigned to enable them to contest in the National Assembly Elections,” the release added.
