EU says refused access to observe Gambia’s election

Gambian authorities have refused the European Union access to observe upcoming elections, an EU spokesman said on Friday, amid concerns about the fairness of the voting process in the tiny West African nation.

The EU had been ready to deploy a small team to provide what it described as a “technical assessment” of the Dec. 1 vote. An EU source said that Gambia’s election commission had signalled last week a willingness to allow the EU to participate, as it had done in the previous election in 2011.
