The Electoral Commission set this Thursday May 22, as the polling day for the Parliamentary seat together with council posts at local government and the sub country chair for Kikyusa.


The voting, according to EC boss, Eng Badru Kiggundu, is set to take place at 375 polling stations in the district commencing 7:00am and closing 5:00pm.


Following a cleanup exercise of the voters’ register which started on April 28, and ended on May 8, 2827 voters were removed from the list and now 185930 voters are expected to turn up on Thursday.


“Following the successful nominations of the candidates which are coming to a close today Tuesday, we monitored the exercise and we must say that it has been largely successful,” Kiggundu said while addressing a press conference at the EC offices on Jinja road.

A number of observers, Kiggundu said, have been picked to monitor the polls which include the US, UK, Netherlands, Ireland embassies, Democratic Governance Facility, and representatives of the candidates among others.


Speaking at the conference, Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, said that the force had deployed sufficiently at all polling stations ahead of the exercise.


He further dismissed reports that police had arrested and persecuted supporters of opposition’s Nabukenya during the campaigning process saying, only precautionary measures were taken to ensure that they don’t disrupt business in the area.


“We didn’t arrest anybody. All we did was seat and advise these people, that Luweero being a central district, their activities ought not to affect people’s business,” he added.
