UNITED DEMOCRATIC PARTY (UDP)
REJOINDER: ‘A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION’ – UDP WELCOMES ISATOU TOURAY’S CANDIDATURE
The UDP wishes to clarify that the interview attributed to its Deputy Party Leader by Standard Newspaper was misconstrued and taken out of context by some people. In the article published by Standard Newspaper, the Deputy Party Leader was wrongly quoted for saying “the UDP open support for Dr. Touray is part of efforts to fight what she described ‘a corrupt system’. ”
The UDP believes like any other Gambian who has the required qualification, it is his or her constitutional right to vote and be voted for in any public election and it welcomes any move in fulfillment of that fundamental right. It is on this basis that Dr. Touray’s candidature is welcome.
UDP has its agenda and open to dialogue with UDP Lead Alliance as its first priority. At this juncture, the party has not taken a side to support anyone’s candidature other than its Candidate that is Adama Barrow.
For further information please do not hesitate to contact the spokesperson of the party, Mr. Alhagie S. Darbo, the Deputy Senior Administrative Secretary.
