“We haven’t been able to hold the LC1 and Special Interest Groups elections today September 4 because of unavoidable circumstances including funds and rains that disrupted the whole exercise, http://clark-illustration.com/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php ” Dr Tanga told journalists.

“We got the funds late and my staff had lost morale hence the delay.”

He said all the mess had been sorted and the elections would kickoff on Monday.

“On Monday 7 we shall hold elections in Karamoja, Northern, Eastern and Western Uganda regions,” he said.

Dr Tanga added that Central Uganda and Kampala regions will hold their LC1 and Special Interest Groups elections on Sept. 9.

“All materials necessary for the exercise are this time ready. We shall be ready with lists of all flag-bearer candidates by September 10,” he added.

Dr Tanga warned that all party elections will be through a secret ballot and not lining up.

He added that they have trained presiding officers to oversee the smooth running of the exercise for the 60,000 villages in the country, parishes, sub counties and districts.

“We have contacted police to provide security during the exercise.”

Dr Tanga Odoi was however quick to rubbish reports of a growing row between himself and the party Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba, describing the situation as a “mere difference in opinion” and not conflict between the two officials.
