Some Opposition MPs say the ongoing rigging and malpractices in the NRM Party Primaries is a clear indication that even in the general elections organized by the Independent Electoral commission they suspect that NRM MPs will rig.
Busongola North MP William Nzonghu says they are ready to take on NRM MPs who will stand to contest against them to make it back to parliament in 2016. He says rigging by the NRM Party is not a new occurrence and it has existed whenever there is any voting to rig out the opposition but they are ready to take on any NRM MP who is ready to rig elections come next year. He continued that most of the opposition MPs have already deployed machineries to crash any person who will participate in vote rigging.
Bukomansimbi county MP Deogracious Kiyingi says during general elections there is no way NRM flag bearers will avoid rigging as they have done always to weed out the opposition MPs. He says this is the only way the ruling will fight to reduce on the representation of the opposition MPs in the 10th Parliament so that it’s easy for government to pass all its interests which oppress the tax payers.
