CSOs demand disbandment of Electoral Commission

Uganda Electoral Commission

EC Officials

Civil Society Organizations have renewed their call for disbanding of the entire Electoral Commission over credibility of the 2016 elections.  Speaking to the press about the post elections at NGO offices at Kabalagala, the Executive Director NGO forum Richard Ssewakiryanga says the irregularities that marred this year’s election justify the incredibility of the electoral commission which should not be seen in any other election. These pin electoral commission for failing to organize a free and fair election which Ugandans had for long cried for.

Meanwhile, these are as well worried about the disruption of stability the sense of injustice can trigger especially when some political heads are denied their freedom and rights even in cases when they want to seek justice. Ssewakiryanga says this unprofessional and partisan conduct of the police force might see Ugandans turn to violence.

On the same note, Imam Kasozi, of the Uganda Muslim Youth Assembly notes that the country cannot be at peace without justice hence a call for united effort to ensure that justice prevails in the country.
