Gambian Parliament Extends Jammeh’s Rule

A day to the expiration of his tenure, the Gambian National Assembly has passed a resolution to allow President Yahya Jammeh to stay in office for three months from Wednesday, state television said.
Jammeh lost an election in December to opposition leader Adama Barrow and is due to hand over power on Thursday, Reuters reported.
However, the veteran leader has declared a state of emergency and said he will not step down before a court hears his election challenge.
