The Electoral Commission last week reversed results of the January 14, election, through which the incumbent MP David Abala had been declared the winner. Initial Results released by Peter Toddu, the Ngora District Returning Officer indicated that Abala won the seat with 8,317 votes, against Achayo' score of 7,828 votes.
According to the commission’s spokesman, Paul Bukenya, Achayo was declared the winner after the commission added votes from eleven polling stations that had not been included at the declaration of Abala.
Bukenya says all the presidential candidates have been notified of the meeting, adding that they are expected to attend in person. “This meeting won't disrupt the normal campaign schedule, the candidates’ campaigns, and meeting can still go on because the candidate will be represented by their official campaign agents,” Says Bukenya.
