  • Gambia
  • Politician & MP, Gambia Parliament

Also as a member of the Ecowas Parliament, Habsana Jallow is unquestionably the hottest female politician in the National Assembly of The Gambia.

At 24, Habsana was selected by the APRC (political party) leadership to contest the Nianija seat in the 2012 National Assembly Elections. She scored an overwhelming victory paving a smooth path to join Decision Makers in the Gambia in the Natinal Assembly.

Habsana entered the National Assembly at a time when Nianija was seriously plagued by a political dispute but through her leadership, peace has now returned to her constituency.

In 2016 Africa Youth Awards named her among the Inaugural 100 Most Influential Young Africans, an initiative instituted to promote African youth movements and achieving and also restoring excellence in the works of young people across Africa.
