United States has condemned Gambian President Yahya Jammeh’s rejection of the outcome of the country’s Presidential election.
In a statement issued by the U.S. State Department. Spokesman Mark Toner says Jammeh’s actions are unacceptable, undermine the election process and are a breach of faith to the people of the Gambia.
Last week Jammeh had initially accepted the result and called his opponent Adama Barrow to concede defeat on state television.
Fearing the outcome of violence in the country, Senegal’s foreign minister, Mankeur Ndiaye has called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the Gambia.
