EC Postpones Namayumba LC3 Poll Over Erroneous Ballot Papers

The Electoral Commission has postponed voting for Namayumba sub county LC3 chairperson following a mix up of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) and National Unity Platform (NUP) party symbols and names on the ballot papers.

EC chairperson, Justice Simon Byabakama Mugenyi confirmed the postponement in a statement Thursday.

“The Electoral Commission hereby informs political parties, independent candidates, their agents and voters in Namayumba Sub County, Wakiso District, that polling for by-election of Sub County Chairperson, Namayumba Sub County Local Government, which was earlier scheduled for Thursday, December 16, 2021, has been postponed to Friday December 17, 2021,” EC chairperson, Justice Simon Byabakama Mugenyi said in a Thursday afternoon statement.

The postponement came hours after NUP leader, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine accused the electoral body of conspiracy over the error.

This is the second time in a year that voting in the sub county is being adjourned.

The first postponement was due to errors in the candidates’ names.
