EC on the Spot Over Incomplete Local Council Polls in Sembabule

The Electoral Commission has come under criticism from the National Unity Platform-NUP party leaders in Sembabule District over the delay to complete local council elections in their area.

The NUP leaders led by Muhammad Ssemanda, the district party registrar are accusing the commission of failing to conduct polls in all local government electoral areas in Sembabule district.

On February 3, the Electoral Commission conducted nationwide elections for Sub-county chairpersons and their councillors, but the exercise did not take place in some areas of Sembabule due to inconsistencies in voting materials.

However, Ssemanda argues that even when the commission organized residual elections that were conducted on February 8, it skipped four electoral areas whose fate remains unknown to date.
