BANJUL (Reuters) - Gambia's President Yahya Jammeh said on Friday he rejects the outcome of a Dec. 1 election that he lost to opposition leader Adama Barrow and called for fresh elections.
The announcement made on state television throws the future for the West African country into question after an unexpected election result that ended Jammeh's 22-year rule and was widely seen as a moment of democratic hope.
