EU tasks Electoral Commission to produce results per polling station

Must read

The European Union Election Observer Mission Uganda has asked the Electoral Commission to publish without delay the detailed results from each polling station for the presidential and parliamentary elections online, including scanned copies of the Declaration of Result forms.

According to the EU observers, this will enable voters and the candidates to comprehensively evaluate the results.

Mr. Eduard Kukan, the EOM chief observer said that the Electoral Commission’s accountability is very important in the post electoral environment. He added that steps such as the publication of inclusive information on election results constitute international best practice in the conduct of democratic elections.

‘Pro-active publication of information of public interest is enshrined in international standards to which Uganda has committed itself with the aim of respecting citizens fundamental freedoms and rights,’ Mr kukan wrote in a statement.

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate Yoweri Museveni was declared president-elect by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in a highly criticized election that was allegedly marred by vote rigging, voter bribery and the intimidation of opposition supporters and leaders.

Efforts to get a comment from the IEC spokesperson Jotham Taremwa were futile by press time.
