The EC requires all candidates to collect at least 100 signatures from each district. They will submit them in not more then two weeks before the nomination dates.
Paul Bukenya, the acting electoral commission spokesperson informed us that 82 aspirants and more had expressed interests in the presidential sit. These were from five political parties which include; National Resistanace Movement(NRM), Revolutionary People’s Party(RPP), National Unity Platform(NUP), Ecological Party Uganda(EPU) and Alliance For National Transformation(ANT)
“We will issue a certificate to presidential candidates that will attain verified supporters from at least 98 districts. They will present this certificate to the returning officer on nomination day,” Paul Bukenya said.
The novel COVID 19 delayed the process yet we’re just a few months away from the 2021 elections. By the look of things however the EC is slowly getting there. The process of getting signatures also takes time especially because the candidates are many.
This time round however, females have really come out to contest for this sit. About nine of them have expressed interest in the presidential sit. This is a very good thing on the part of gender equality because it shows we have gone a step ahead when it comes to civilization.
