Election 2016

Mpaka Floors Gen Tumukunde’s Son in Western Youth MP Race

Presidential candidate in the February 18th elections Elton Joseph Mabirizi has added his voice to the ongoing grumbling about the manner in which the exercise was conducted, no rx http://centruldedic.ro/wp-includes/feed-rss2.php and demanded the immediate cancellation of the results and declaration of the winner.

Mabirizi, pills http://cinsellikteperformans.com/templates/yoo_sync/warp/layouts/modules/templates/0-2-3.php an independent candidate and flag bearer of The Independent Coalition (TIC) out of the 9 million voters managed to get 23762 votes (0.26%), information pills http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-content/plugins/unyson/framework/extensions/shortcodes/shortcodes/special-heading/config.php but believes President Museveni who was eventually announced, was not the winner of the election.

In a strong worded statement yesterday, Mabirizi termed the February 20th election results read out by the Electoral Commission Chairman Eng Badru Kiggundu as “a deplorable forgery”

“This is a shame,” he said. “Mr. Museveni did not win this election. Besides, Dr. Badru Kiggundu, as all reports from local and international observers have indicated, presided over an election that was neither free, fair not credible.”

“Our own records obtained from our agents countrywide and from our colleagues with whom we cooperated in vote protection attest to the sad fact that the results announced by Dr. Kiggundu were and are a deplorable forgery.”

He then demanded that EC Chairman Kiggundu resigns immediately as well as his commissioners.

He also vowed to join his colleagues to challenge the result using all constitutional means available to us, “until the stolen victory is reversed and handed back to the true winner of this election.” The aggrieved candidates have until the end of today Tuesday to file a complaint in the courts of law.

Mr Mabirizi went on to predict violence in the coming days, which he said can only be averted if Eng Kiggundu nullifies the declaration of Mr. Museveni as winner.

“For the avoidance of doubt,” he added, “a vote recount be conducted, as national demand, as there was no tallying worth its name at the national tally center at Nambole, but periodic announcements of forged results. Results from at least 1700 polling stations were selectively not tallied.”

As for the Forum for Democratic Change Presidential candidate Candidate Col Dr Kizza Besigye who remains under police watch, Mr Mabirizi demanded his immediate release.
Mwiine Mpaka Rwamirama has been voted Western Youth Member of Parliament, view http://cayein.com/wp-includes/text/diff/engine/native.php beating his rival Amanya Tumukunde, http://daiviet.us/wp-admin/includes/ms-admin-filters.php son of Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde in hotly contested elections on Monday.

The exercise that took place at Kagote Seventh Day Adventist Hall in the western district of Fort Portal was concluded at around 1am in the morning of Tuesday.

Mpaka, who is also son of Animal Industry Minister Bright Rwamirama was declared winner, polling 653 votes casted by the Electoral College against Amanya’s 461.

The western youth elections just like in the Central region witnessed immense violence but the situation was calmed in the evening. There was heavy deployment of police and Military Police.

Mpaka was the National Resistance Movement’s candidate while Amanya stood on the independent ticket but NRM leaning and had the support from a number of the ruling party’s youth leaders.

The Western region is the ruling party’s stronghold and Mpaka win was expected. In the 2011 elections, the current seat holder Gerald Karuhanga won the race after he quit Forum for Democratic Change party and stood as an independent.
