MORE CIVIC EDUCATION NEEDED FOR FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS -ANT

ANT-39b1817d

The Alliance for National Transformations (ANT) has called for more civic education to be carried out by the Electoral Commission ahead of the 2021 election.

The party says they noticed lots of gaps while collecting signatures for their presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu.

Addressing the press at the Party headquarters in Kampala today, the party’s Electoral Commission boss Dan Mugarura says that they were forced to go back and collect other signatures after the Electoral Commission rejected some of their signatures after some people signed for their candidate and other candidates at the same time.

Mugarura also says that some voters from newly formed districts are still confused about boundaries and hence associate with former districts or constituents other than new ones where they belong.  

Mugarura attributed the challenges to insufficient civic education which he says should be conducted by the Electoral Commission.  

According to the party spokesperson Wilberforce Sseryanzi, the party submitted signatures from 130 districts and by Tuesday this week, signatures from 101 districts had been cleared.
He said they await nominations of their candidate on November 2nd after he was cleared by EC and issued with a certificate.
