The flagbearer of the opposition Socialist PDOIS party Halifa Sallah, has been involved in an automobile accident, this medium can reveal. The PDOIS leader, who is currently touring the country suffered cuts on his face. He is said to be responding to treatment. Mr. Sallah, and his entourage were returning from a funeral, when the crash occurred.
The PDOIS Central Committee is yet to issue a statement to brief the population about Halifa’s accident. Sources say the politician’s health condition is not life threatening.
Mr. Sallah is 63 year of age. He has been nominated to represent the PDOIS in Gambia’s 2016, Presidential elections scheduled for December, 1. Mr. Sallah would be overaged after the coming polls; hence his participation in this year’s poll will no doubt avail him with the opportunity to vey for the Presidency. His party says it is open to an opposition merger.
