EC spokesperson Jotham Taremwa during an EC Media Night organized at the Media Centre in Kampala on Friday, vehemently denied the accusations when tasked by journalists to explain the unprecedented change.

“Our postponement of election period is completely unrelated to that of the NRM. We issued the roadmap to guide the stakeholders to know what we are doing. There are a few countries that issue these roadmaps, but we did this because we wanted the public to both follow us and audit us.”

“We had earlier proposed that all electoral amendments would have ended by 27th February last year but since the amendments came in the other day, we have to interpret them on how they impact on our work and what needs to be changed.”

“So our response to these amendments has no relationship at all with the organization of any party.”

Taremwa added that the public shouldn’t be alarmed by the extension of the exercise since several amendments within the roadmap have been done since the entire process started.
