UDP Lost Election Petition, Order to Pay D100, 000

By Almamo Kamaso
The United Democratic Party (UDP) has lost its petition case in the High Court yesterday due to the none compliance to rule 11. It could be recalled that the UDP filed an election petition, 14 December 2021 asking for the nullification of the 2021 presidential elections which was in favor of Adama Barrow.
The Adama Barrow team of lawyers were quick to come up with a motion asking the courts to throw out the case as they the petitioners did fulfill certain rules , which is to say they did not serve the petitioned persons, that is IEC and Adama Barrow within the required time limit. The Supreme Court did established that the UDP did failed in meeting security cost and they did not serve others parties; and therefore the petitioners (UDP) were ordered to pay a cost of D100,000 to Adama and IEC.
Commenting on the verdict of the Supreme Court , an insider of the party said we have never left any wrong doing go unchallenged and above all the petition is not thrown out base on merits but rather on technicalities. The unidentified person said the party will continued to work harder to make sure that this country is not left at the mercy of people who do not have the country at heart.
Borry Toury led the UDP team whiles Sheriff Tambendou led the Barrow team.
