According to reports, FDC’s Apollo Kantinti’s electoral area is Mukono municipality implying he is not a registered voter in the constituency the opposition figure is trying to represent.
The Kyadondo East By-election fell vacant after court nullified the 2016 results.

The EC boss said the commission is critically analyzing the judgement so that the mistakes that were pointed out by court are not repeated. He also said the penalty for the individuals responsible for the irregularities shall be communicated.
