She adds that a schedule of the affected electoral areas has been uploaded on the Electoral Commission website www.ec.or.ug and publicised through local media in each respective district.

“The Commission calls upon political parties, candidates, their agents and registered voters in the affected electoral areas to turn up in big numbers and participate in the above electoral activity in accordance with the guidelines for the elections of the respective positions,” Hajjat Aisha says.
