Jallow-Tambajang had persuaded all the opposition parties to come together and field a single candidate.
Spokesman Halifa Sallah said she was appointed to correct the gender balance in Barrow’s administration.
“Consideration has been given in terms of balance of the constitution of the cabinet,” he said.
She had said Jammeh would be prosecuted for crimes committed by his regime.
