EC’s percentage calculations include invalid votes.

Kiggundu says he will keep updating the nation every two hours as more election results come in.

The first reading of 580 polling stations had put Museveni at 63 percent.

However, as more results trickled in, Besigye and other presidential candidates appeared to be making considerable gains.

The EC promised to avail full results per district as asked by journalists at the national tally centre at Mandela National Stadium.

In the third place is former Prime Minister and Go Forward candidate Amama Mbabazi with 41,291 votes which represent 1.87 percent.

Several Ministers in President Museveni’s government are being felled in the NRM elections, approved http://crosscon.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-comment.php underscoring the growing unpopularity of the elderly ruling party leaders.

The powerful Education Minister Maj Jessica Alupo was staring on possible defeat by Violet Akurut Adome, http://chienyenthinh.com/components/com_falang/helpers/defines.php the Katakwi NRM candidate.

Alupo was floored in the NRM primaries only to stand on the independent ticket on grounds that she was rigged out of the race.

Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister Kahinda Otafiire was evidently facing stiff resistance from the official NRM candidate Donozio Kahonda. Kahinda, http://cyberstudio.biz/main/components/com_media/helpers/media.php who is standing as an Independent, has lost key areas to Kahonda – a hitherto unknown politician.

Energy Minister Irene Muloni, according to provisional results is trailing the maverick Sarah Nambozo Wekomba for the Bulambuli seat.

Police are holding 10 people in relation to the election violence in Bulambuli allegedly orchestrated by Wekomba’s armed supporters.

Elderly Agriculture State Minister Vincent Ssempijja is reported to be behind the younger Lule Mayiwa for the Kalungu East MP.

Economic Monitoring Minister Henry Banyenzaki was getting a second beating by former Works Ministry Commissioner Eng Denis Sabiiti.

After losing the NRM primaries, Banyenzaki tried to use courts of law to block Sabiiti from standing as Rubanda West MP, a court battle he eventually lost.

Efforts aimed at reclaiming the seat as an independent do not appear to be bearing fruit.

Internal Affairs Minister Grace Akol was by Thursday night headed for a possible defeat in Bukedea. She has been serving the second term in Parliament which is rare for the people of Bukedea who give leaders only one term in Parliament.

Rujumbura lawmaker and Information Minister Jim Muhwezi was as well facing stiff resistance from FDC’s Fred Turyamuhweza.

Muhwezi, an NRA war historical and close ally of President Museveni, won the NRM primaries with a margin of about 6,000 votes.

Meanwhile, Minister Aidah Nantaba was ahead of rivals Juliet Nalunga and Dorothy Byekwaso for Kayunga Woman MP seat.

In Ibanda South Constituency, Eng John Byabagambi was in a comfortable lead while Francis Mwijukye was likely to take Buhweju.
