- CitizensÃ¢ Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda (CCEDU) has trained and deployed forty five (45) accredited election observers ahead of the June 29 2017 Kyadondo East Constituency by-election.ÃÂ The election is as a result of a Court ruling that nullified the February 2016 election of FDCÃ¢s Mr. Apollo Kantinti on grounds that the Electoral Commission did not comply with electoral laws then.
- CCEDU election observers monitored the pre-election period including: candidatesÃ¢ nomination, update of the voters register, the display of the votersÃ¢ register, and campaigns. The observers met with various stakeholders, including Electoral Commission, Uganda Police Force, candidates, political parties, civil society groups, religious institutions, among others.
- On Election Day, CCEDU will station observers in all parishes to cover at least 50% of the 93 polling stations in Kyadondo East Constituency.ÃÂ There are nine (9) parishes in the Constituency; these include: Bulamu, Gayaza, Katadde, Kabubbu, Kiteezi, Masooli, Nangabo, Wampeewo and Watuba.ÃÂ Polling day observation will focus on: opening, voting and closing processes.
- This pre-election statement presents the preliminary findings of the CCEDU Election Observation, highlighting key observations and conclusions. CCEDU will provide Election Day statements and a comprehensive election observation report will be produced within a month after the election.
