“Today, I fulfilled one of the requirements of the Presidential Elections Act that requires all presidential aspirants to submit signatures of Ugandans supporting their candidature,” Baryamureeba told journalists at Electoral Commission (EC) headquarters in Kampala.

Baryamureeba revealed that he had submitted signatures from 77 districts and would soon submit a supplementary list to make it 112 districts.”

He said he faced a number of huddles while handling this exercise which among others included resistance and hindrance from police to reach some areas.

“This I blame to the Electoral Commission for poorly sensitizing the public as well as security bodies on the ongoing exercise.”

He revealed that some people denied him signatures with a view that he was recruiting rebels, which he said was a result of propaganda circulated by NRM supporters against any opposition aspirant.

“I wish to thank all Ugandans for supporting my candidature and I assure you of victory come 2016.”

Electoral Commission has extended the exercise of returning nomination forms to September 29 allowing more time to a total of 48 aspirants to fulfill all the requirements as laid down in the law.
