7th October 2013



Citizens' Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda (CCEDU) has dispatched a pre-election Observer mission to the Buhweju District by election slated for 31st October 2013.

The Buhweju District Woman Member of Parliament seat fell vacant following the sudden death of 27 year old Woman MP, Joy Arinaitwe Kariisa. Buhweju district has 41,768 registered voters and a polling network of 120 stations.

CCEDU has thus far dispatched observer missions to 9 of the 13 by-elections conducted in Uganda since the February 2011 general elections. The Buhweju by election will be the 10th such mission for the Civil Society Organization which specializes in electoral matters.

In an integrated exercise, the CCEDU team will train 22 community observers as well as observe the conduct of party nomination exercises on 10-11th October 2013.

Though the by election has been occasioned by death,CCEDUs priority focus is to beam on the strict adherence to electoral lawsby political parties and the Electoral Commission particularly in view of the high number of costly by elections occasioned by the presentation of fake academic documents by aspirants.

Electoral Commission Secretary Sam Rwokojo has indicated that over shs 396 million has been set aside for both the Buhweju woman MP and the district directly elected councilor for Nyakishana.

In addition, CCEDU will roll out a motivational and value based voter education program through local vernacular FM radio spot adverts and talk shows.
