The Electoral Commission (EC) has disqualified the National Unity Platform (NUP) candidate for the central region youth MP seat for flouting nomination rules.
A tribunal chaired by Hajjat Aisha Lubega B, the Electoral Commission Vice Chairperson, ruled that Moses Kasule flouted the procedures for his nomination when he presented a signature of an ineligible seconder.
Kasule reportedly put the Nabweru Division Vice Chairperson, Emmanuel Kiwuuwa, on the list of his nominators yet he isn’t a member of any District Youth Council.
The EC planned to hold the central youth MP elections in Masaka. However, the venue was changed to Mubende District.
