outgoing Gambian president appoints mediator

The Gambia remains tense just over a week before President Yahya Jammeh is due to relinquish power. Jammeh disputes a recent election defeat and regional leaders, backing a democratic transition, have delayed a visit.

Yahya Jammeh, authoritarian ruler of The Gambia for 22 years, and now its outgoing president, has appointed a mediator to facilitate meetings between himself and Adama Barrow, the president-elect.
Jammeh refuses to accept the outcome of an election on December 1 when he was defeated by Barrow, who has said he is planning to take office as scheduled on January 19.

Jammeh said in a television address on Wednesday that the ruling party's secretary general would mediate between his supporters and the opposition "to resolve any mistrust and issues."
