While for the members of parliament will be on the 12th and 13th of October. Mr. Paul Bukenya, the acting electoral commission spokesperson revealed this in an interview.
The commission emphasized that the candidates will have to take advantage of the media as a means of reaching their voters. The electoral commission will issue specific guidelines. These will be for keeping peace and calm for each electoral activity during campaigns.
The commission maintained that campaigns through media are the safest. The commission said they can’t rely on the discipline of the nominated candidates. The health guidelines have set the pace for these elections.
Even as much as it’s their duty to ensure voters have their rights, as well as the candidates. This is so because right now health is priority worldwide.
However, the commission doesn’t know how the candidates will be availed opportunities to do campaigns after nominations. Especially via media such as radio and television. This is so because we have seen the police frustrate most of the efforts by opposition candidates.
The police have been stopping the opposition from conducting their campaigns on both radio and TV. Justice Byabakama, the EC chairperson when asked about this, appealed to the media owners to give an opportunity to every candidate to have fair coverage.
