Al Hadji Yahya Jammeh, President of the Republic of the Gambia, addresses the 69th United Nations General Assembly at the U.N. headquarters in New YorkGambia will hold a presidential election in December 2016, with legislative and local polls to follow in April 2017 and April 2018, the electoral commission said on Monday. The tiny West African nation of less than 2 million people has been ruled by Yahya Jammeh since 1994, when the then 29-year-old seized power in a bloodless coup. Jammeh, who once told a reporter he could rule for "a billion years", had scrapped term limits from the constitution and blocked an attempt by regional bloc ECOWAS to reinstate them in May. The bloc refused to send observers to the last polls in 2011, citing intimidation of the opposition and the electorate.

Kabore votes during the presidential and legislative election at a polling station in OuagadougouBy Mathieu Bonkoungou OUAGADOUGOU (Reuters) - Roch Marc Kabore, a former prime minister, was on course for victory on Monday as results poured in from an election to choose Burkina Faso's first new president in decades. Provisional results from around 72 percent of the country's communes showed that Kabore had 54 percent of the vote against 29 percent for Zephirin Diabre, a former finance minister, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission. Fourteen candidates contested the election but it looked possible that Kabore could win an outright majority without the need for a run-off.
