But more to the point, what I saw in Gambia was a huge amount of factionalization and large political undercurrents that distract from the real issues.

You will see more soon and before the deadlines and we will keep a close eyes on the next step for the bylaw revision

It is well and good for all of us, myself included, to sit here and state the problems, but if we don't submit comments through the right channels nothing will change!
