Mbale city polls results to be out Friday

By Kitts D.Mabonga


The electoral commission of the ruling NRM party has said the results for four remaining election units that are still being tallied would be declared latest Friday so that the voter tensions can be eased.

The remarks were yesterday  made by the vice chairman  party electoral commission Mr.  John Kigyagi while addressing a news conference in Kampala who said  results for Mbale city woman MP, Ntoroko county in Ntoroko district, Butembe county Jinja and Jinja city woman would be declared latest by Friday after technical issues have been sorted out.

Mr. Kigyagi said Mbale city woman results had been withheld after  a bitter  fight ensued last week  when results for the direct constituency  were being declared but urged the voters to remain calm.

SPEAKING TOUGH; The electoral commission boss Dr.Tanga Odoi addressing the media recently.

Hon.Connie Nakayenze Galiwango  who is the incumbent woman MP for Mbale district has crossed over to contest for the new city elective post  of whom both  the local media and political analysts  had declared as possible winner is still waiting to be declared soon.
