The appointment of a new National Resistance Movement-NRM party registrar for Mukono district on polling day has caused confusion among voters. 

Benon Ssekanyo was appointed on Friday replacing Gerald Mukisa who allegedly resigned on Thursday. 

This has left many party members including candidates questioning the district party’s intentions.

Margret Nakavubu a candidate in the Woman MP race says the move is intended to create an opportunity for alternating results from various polling stations. 

She anticipates that the registrar must have been forced out of office by party district big wigs.

Samuel Bbanda alleges that the registrar must have been forced out by the top party leaders with self-centred interests.

“Why do you they have appointed the party electoral commission board member and not his deputy.” 

However, Lubega Sseruga, the NRM office administrator says the changes are normal.
