The main centre is now handling candidates from Mukono South, North, Aspirants for the District leadership position, and the municipality whereas the new centre is handling candidates from Nakifuma County.

Mukono District Registrar Mark Mayanja Muganzi says that the second centre has eased the task, an assurance that the exercise will be complete in time.

Meanwhile, the nomination has so far been dominated by persons contesting as independent candidates who have been rushing to receive symbols that were gazetted by the Electoral Commission. Independent candidates vying for the same position are not allowed to use a similar symbol.

Sylvia kyowa, the incumbent, representing Nama sub-county at the district council is now contesting as an independent after losing the party flag in the National Resistance Movement-NRM primaries. She says could not risk petitioning the party Electoral Commission since it has piles of petitions to review.

Caroline Nanyonjo, another candidate vying for a position of Namubiru parish Councillor in Nama Sub County says NRM was not transparent forcing her to quit and seek an independent card.

The nomination exercise that has started today is expected to end on October 1, this year.
