The EC noted that these areas had a lot of irregularities that couldn’t let them continue with elections. Some of the issues include a mismatch in symbols on ballot papers, incorrect names of candidates among others.
“Those electoral areas in different parts of the country were not able to conduct or conclude the elections due to mismatch or absence of details (photographs, names or symbols) of candidates on the ballot paper, and/or violent conduct at polling stations leading to the destruction of polling materials,” Paul Bukenya, EC Spokesperson said.
Some of the affected areas include district chairpersons of Kyankwanzi and Madi-Okollo districts, sub-county chairpersons for Kaasangombe in Nakaseke and Nabingoola (Mubende), Mateete Town Council in Mawogola (Ssembabule), Ngandho Sub-county in Budiope (Buyende), and Bala Sub-county in Kole, among others.
It is always expensive to redo elections, however, due to inevitable circumstances, there is always no choice. Currently, there is also a challenge in court against even the presidential elections. And just in case they are nullified, that will be another budget.
All the same, even with a high budget, people ought to always challenge what they don’t trust. We await what these local government polls will bring forth this time.
