Launched on November 16, the electoral campaign ended on November 29 in the Gambia. On December 1st, 886 578 Gambian citizens will elect the next president between three candidates: Yahya Jammeh, candidate to his own succession, Adama Barrow who represents the coalition of the opposition, and Mammah Kandeh, ex member of the party in power. The campaign period was not a peaceful one: citizens went out in the street to demand more freedom and the respect of their rights, and some opposition members were jailed. The meetings of the opposition are quite popular since some of them had to be cancelled because the venue could not accomodate all the participants. Two weeks before the campaign launch, Human Rights Watch issued a report providing valuable information about human rights violations by the regime of Jammeh.
