    defeated gambian president rejects election result, calls for new votedefeated gambian president rejects election result, calls for new vote gambia's president of more than 22 years has rejected the result of the presidential election held earlier this month, a week after admitting defeat. speaking on state tv, mr jammeh cited "abnormalities" in the vote and callled for fresh elections. president yahya jammeh who came to power in a coup in 1994 lost to opposition leader, adama barrow - a former argos security guard - who won more than 45% of the vote in last week's presidential election. whilst speaking about election result, he said that our investigations reveal that in some cases voters were told that the opposition has already won and that there was no need for them to vote and, out of anger, some of them returned homeaid. "i hereby reject the results in totality," he said. "i will not accept the results based on what has happened", he added. the us "strongly condemned" mr jammeh's statement. "this action is a reprehensible and unacceptable breach of faith with the people of the gambia and an egregious attempt to undermine a credible election process and remain in power illegitimately," said state department spokesman mark toner. mr barrow, a property developer, is due to take office in late january. the gambia is the smallest country on mainland africa, with a population of fewer than two million.
