Talib Bensouda

In the wake of polls results putting him on track of commanding today’s mayoral election, United Democratic Party (UDP) candidate in Kanifing Municipality has expressed hope to pull more votes than expected.

“I hope I will do more,” Bensouda told this reporter shortly after casting his ballot at Pipe-Line Mosque, about 8 km away from Banjul.

The UDP flag-bearer recently got an approval rating of 38.4% in an opinion conducted by University of The Gambia (UTG) political students under the supervision of renowned lecturer Dr.Ismaela Ceesay.

Bensouda said Gambia will win today, and added that this voting process will strengthen our democracy.

“Anyone who prevails, our democracy will win today,” he said in attempt to humble himself down.

He seized the opportunity to commend the Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) and President Adama Barrow for conducting a ‘free and fair election.’
