At the start of its week-long study tour of The Gambia, the six (6) man delegation from the Political Parties Regulation Commission (PPRC) headed by the Chairman, Abdulai Masiyambay Bangurah met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Interior Affairs at their various offices in The Gambia.

The team paid a courtesy call on Sierra Leone High Commission in The Gambia and spoke with the press on the purpose of the visit.

In all of the meetings that were organised by the Inter-Party Committee (IPC) of the Gambia, who are the host, the Chairman, Abdulai Masiyambay Bangurah expressed hopes that, at the end of the tour, the Commission will be able to replicate the successes gained by the IPC, during the last elections in The Gambia, which in no small measure, helped to keep their Country cohesive, before, during and after the said elections.

The IPC he says has enjoyed the trust, confidence and respect of registered political parties in the Country. Their role was also noted by both local and International Observers and donor partners.

“We are here to learn from the IPC how they were able to achieve this feat and from the lessons learnt, to see how much we can do to transform the All Political Parties Association (APPA) back home, in like trajectory,” the Chairman said.

He admired the patriotic position of IPC, in conducting their activities with a national and not partisan lenses. This is the PPRC’s dream for APPA.

In his remarks, the Co-Chairs of the IPC Hon. Saikou Bah and Samba Baldeh say, this study tour shows that their work has not gone unnoticed and expressed hope that they will also learn from the Sierra Leone experience.

In their remarks, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Interior both expressed kind sentiments and hope that this visit will serve to reinforce the close bilateral partnership and collaboration between Sierra Leone and The Gambia.
