The National People's Party has formed its first national executive, but it excluded Banjulians.  

Launched in December 2020 to support President Adama Barrow's candidacy for the presidential election scheduled for December 4, the NPP is now among the biggest parties in the country. 

The party's new national executive which was announced on Sunday is led by the president. He's the party leader and secretary general.  

Veteran politician and presidential adviser, Dembo Bojang of Bakau was appointed as the party's national president. 

Other prominent members of the national executive include former National Assembly member Seedy Njie, youth leader Lamin K Saidy and National Assembly member for Tallinding Fatoumatta Jawara.  

According to some NPP militants, their party's executive is one the most diverse consisting of members from different parts of the country. 

But on the list that was released on Sunday, there was no Banjulian.  

According to a political commentator who spoke to What's On-Gambia, the exclusion of Banjulians from the national executive could affect NPP's popularity in the city.
