The National Resistance Movement (NRM) has changed the date for its parliamentary and LCV primaries to tomorrow, October 26.
The primaries were slated for today but the NRM Electoral Commission deputy chairperson John Arimpa Kigyagi issued a release on Sunday, indicating the change.
‘The National Resistance Movement, Electoral Commission announces the postponement of the party primary elections which were slated for tomorrow, Monday the 26th of October, 2015 to Tuesday the 27th of October, 2015 throughout the country. We regret any inconveniences caused,’ the release states.
The postponement comes in the wake of reports that the party election material had not been delivered to all polling stations, and also that some aspirants had already set in motion tactics to rig the votes in some areas.
However, the NRM Electoral Commission boss Dr Tanga Odoi has warned those planning to engage in any polling malpractices, saying they would be dealt with.
He also named the electoral hotspots among them Lwemiyaga County in Ssembabule, and Kibuku, Lwengo, Bundibugyo and Bukedea districts.
