Gambian President Adama Barrow’s National People’s Party won 19 of the 53 contested parliamentary seats, overturning the main opposition United Democratic Party’s majority, but fell short of securing the majority needed to govern the country alone. Al Jazeera reports that Barrow faces numerous challenges, including soaring inflation, national reconciliation, and fighting corruption. He has also promised to introduce constitutional change by the end of his term, but in September 2020 the outgoing parliament rejected a draft constitution limiting the president to two terms.
