The candidates stormed the tallying desk demanding that the district registrar Benon Ssekanyo halts the declaration process until their complaints were rectified. Complaints included alteration of results and declaration of candidates who did not win.
It is alleged that the results that were delivered to the district tally centre did not match what was already declared at the village level prompting contenders to protest. The new results favoured Badru Kabuye against Diana Nyago and the incumbent MP Paul Musoke.
Emmanuel Mbonye, one of the delegates, says the system is likely to fuel disunity in the party. He says in the past candidates would celebrate with all voters irrespective of whether or not they voted for them since it was done through secret ballot.
