The Independent Electoral Commission has said that as far as it is concerned, APRC is led by the Fabakary Tombong Jatta executive until another congress says otherwise.
Last week, former president Yahya Jammeh announced he has replaced the FTJ-led executive for  joining NPP without his permission.
Jammeh said the APRC should instead work with Gambia Alliance for National Unity (Ganu) led by Sheikh Tijan Hydara who twice served as a justice minister in his government.
However, Pa Modou Mbowe, a member of the new executive hand-picked by Jammeh, has insisted that the former president has the powers to sack Fabakary Tombong Jatta and his executive members as they too were handpicked by Jammeh.
“Yes, obviously, because the likes of Fabakary and Rambo, Jammeh was the one who handpicked them,” Mr Mbowe told The Fatu Network in an exclusive interview.
But when contacted for comments, the IEC director of communications, Pa Khan argued: “It is a legal requirement for all political parties to conduct bi-annual congresses from which they will select their executive. So, for somebody somewhere to just dissolve an executive elected through a congress has no legal basis and doesn’t hold water.
