EC’s Byabakama Excited By Bobi Wine’s Election Petition Withdrawal

The Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama has said the commission was elated after Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine withdrew his petition challenging President Yoweri Museveni’s victory.
The Supreme Court last week allowed Kyagulanyi’s application to withdraw his presidential election petition challenging President Yoweri Museveni’s victory.
“How would you feel if someone says he has issues with the work you did in managing elections and goes to court to challenge the same and advances the grounds for doing so, but in due course, the same person says NO, am withdrawing this case.” Byabakama said in an interview with the journalists shortly after the meeting with MPs at Parliament on Wednesday.

The Supreme Court last week allowed Kyagulanyi’s application to withdraw his presidential election petition challenging President Yoweri Museveni’s victory.

Kyagulanyi accused the court of bias after it disallowed his two applications where he sought to file more grounds and affidavits (evidence) beyond the Court’s stipulated timeline.

“This means as a commission, we don’t have any challenge to the outcome of what we did. And secondary, it means the outcome should be accepted by everyone as to what indeed transpired,” Byabakama said.

In related news; Bobi Wine upon withdrawing his election petition called on Ugandans to rise up in peaceful protests against what he called “regime oppression”.

The 39-year-old was speaking beside a table piled high with files. He claimed these files contained results forms from individual polling stations. He said based on these results, he was the real winner with 54 percent of the vote. Newslex Point has not yet been able to verify the evidence he presented.

However, police and the army met his call with heavy deployment across the cities and major towns in the country. Security Authorities said they will not tolerate any form of misconduct from anyone. They cautioned the public against listening to leaders who mislead people.
