Other flag bearers for the entire Wakiso district and the
five divisions and municipalities of Kampala were also mentioned in a list
released both on the party’s social media platforms and on the noticeboard of
the party offices of central region located in Kabuusu Lubaga division.
Meanwhile the released list has already started sparking
voices of discontent especially among the so called NUP-People power diehards
some of whom have been dropped in the vetting process as they tried to aspire
for the party ticket on several positions of councilors.
Joel Ssenyonyi, the party spokesperson has told Uganda Radio Network - URN that the
party did all it could to transparently conduct a quick process bearing in mind
that time was limited since the unveiling of the party in comparison with the
national electoral commission road map.
He says all aggrieved aspirants should lodge their
complaints not later than Sunday 20th September at 4pm and must
state specific grounds on which the appeals are premised.
He also said that the reason why they had to release the
list via online media platforms was to save time for the councilors who have to
prepare for their nominations with the EC starting tomorrow Monday morning.
