Electoral commission disqualifies FDC Palisa woman MP Candidate


The electoral commission has disqualified the candidature of the Opposition Forum for Democratic Change’s Achola Catherine Osupelem.

Achola who is contesting in the Palisa District Woman Member of Parliament is said not to be eligible to remain in the race following the complaint raised by the ruling party.

According to the letter dated 14th June signed by the chairperson Electoral commission Justice Simon Byabakama, Achola’s names nominated do not match with those that are on her academic papers something that is against the law.

Byabakama adds that Achola did not finish evidence to show there was compliance within the law when she adopted the said names during the time of registration for the National ID Card in 2015 as its stated by the commission.
