Parliament passed the Local Government (Amendment) Bill, 2014 providing for lining up behind candidates during elections of chairpersons for village (LC1) and parish (LC2) levels.

EC launches voter education programme

uganda election 2016

EC launches voter education programme

Added 18 November 2015

This awareness will be done in 14 districts


By Joseph Wanzusi

The Electoral Commission (EC) has launched a voter education programme to create election awareness from village to village in 14 districts of Bukedi, Bugisu and Sebei sub-regions.

ve launch1Officiating the function at Mbale Cricket Ground, the EC Elgon Region returning officer Umau Kiyimba cautioned the public against committing crimes like defacing candidates’ posters and flouting traffic rules while canvassing for votes.

Kiyimba also appealed to both public and private media houses to balance election news reporting about all candidates so as to help the voters make decisions from informed choices.

In his remarks, the chief executive officer of Uganda Project Implementation and Management Centre (UPIMAC) Steven Nyabongo whose organization has been mandated the EC to carry out the exercise in the 14 districts urged voters participate in the election process instead of being mere spectators.

ve launch4Nyabongo advised voters to study the candidates’ manifestoes, vote for leaders who respect the views of the people, avoid election malpractices and using hate speech during political campaigns.

“Voters should elect people who will make up a vibrant Parliament and local councils that will address issues that affect the life of the people while winners of the elective positions should embrace every citizen after the exercise is concluded,” Nyabongo advised.

The citizens of Uganda should know that their vote during national elections is variable and it counts in putting responsible leaders in elective positions,” he added.

Nyabongo regretted the reaction of losers in party primaries who are agitating to run as independent candidates adding that a loser who abandons a political party is not a principled person.

UPIMAC programme officer Phillip Wanzira Wagamala said voter education exercise will cover roles and responsibilities of elected leaders, rights of citizens in the electoral process, electoral offences and penalties, voting procedures, electoral disputes and resolution mechanisms and post election period among others.

 

 

 

ve launch2Wagamala explained that a team of district facilitators, sub-county mobilizers and village volunteers have been trained in the implementation of the voters’ education module that has been developed in accordance with the electoral laws of Uganda.

“UPIMAC wants to encourage full participation of citizens in the electoral process and educate voters so as to minimize the number of invalid ballot papers cast at all levels of the election,” Wagamala added.

 At the launch, UPIMAC distributed voter education module booklets, brochures and posters to sub-county mobilizers and volunteers
