UDP breaks away from NADD

BANJUL- Lawyer Ousainou Darboe, leader of United Democratic Party (UDP), has today declared his resignation from newly formed opposition coalition, National Alliance for Democracy and Development (NADD) amidst charges of lack of cohesion among the executives. In a press conference today, our source revealed that an optimistic lawyer Darboe confidently declared his resignation from NADD to members of the press.

A well-organized UDP rally according to our source is planned to take place in opposition strong hold of Brikama, in the following days or week to come…Allgambian reports

I will not comment on this development until I have a sense of the events that transpired leading to this breakup. However I believe it is safe to say that it doesn’t bode well for the chances of the opposition in toppling Yahya unless a viable coalition could be form out of the ruins of NADD.

    Interesting development. I’m not surprised since I’ve always thought this was the reason it took so long to name a flag bearer. I actually thought they would name Darboe for this reason. I really hope this is not true.

    The picture emerging is that the UDP and the NRP…the two largest opposition parties might be working together. Obviously I have no clue what is transpiring out there.

    What a shame. I don’t understand this type of selfishness.
