He called up on all stakeholders who will participate in this electoral event to comply with the provisions of the law.


The commission has set May 22, as the polling date for the by-election of District Woman Representative in Parliament for Luweero District as well as by-elections to fill the vacancies existing at various Local Government Councils in Luweero District, as indicated below which will take place at all polling stations in Luweero district.


“An update of the Voters’ Register for Luwero District will be conducted from April 8-12, 2014 at update stations within each parish in the District, starting at 8:00am till 6:00pm, on each of the appointed dates, including weekends,” Kiggundu announced.


Kiggundu noted that Luweero District currently has a total number of 188,757 registered voters and 375 polling stations.


Voters in the attached Sub counties will be casting two (2) votes; one for the District Woman Member of Parliament, and one for the mentioned Councillor in each of those local Governments.


He revealed that the exercise will enable Ugandan citizens of 18 years and above, who either reside or originate in parishes within the above District, and who have not had their photographs and bio-data taken before by the Electoral Commission for purposes of registration for elections, to do so.


The nomination of candidates shall be conducted on Monday 5, Tuesday 6, at a designated venue in the District.


This will be followed by a period of six (6) days, that is, from May 7-12, 2014, during which members of the general public will have access to the candidates’ nomination papers, and will be able to lodge complaints, if any, on suitability of the candidates to contest in the by-election.


The Commission has questioned all candidates to observe law and order avoiding hate language during the campaign exercise which shall be held for a period of 13 days from May 8 – 20.


The Luweero seat fell vacant following the recent Constitutional Court’s Justice Remmy Kasule’s ruling which nullified Hon Brenda Nabukenya’s 2011 victory on grounds that the EC had breached electoral rules.
