Voters in The Gambia Reelect President Adama Barrow

HeadlineDec 06, 2021

Voters in The Gambia have reelected Adama Barrow as president of the small West African nation. It was The Gambia’s first election since former President Yahya Jammeh fled into exile in 2017, 22 years after he seized power in a bloodless coup. Jammeh had refused to accept Barrow’s previous win and was forced from power by a military alliance of other West African states.
