EDITOR—Considering the mess in kenya and what is going on in Zimbabwe, i think Ugandans should appreciate the fact that officials at the electoral commission (EC) are doing a fairly good job though not a perfect one.

EDITOR—Considering the mess in kenya and what is going on in Zimbabwe, i think Ugandans should appreciate the fact that officials at the electoral commission (EC) are doing a fairly good job though not a perfect one.

For example, our EC has always ensured that the final results are released within 48 hours after tallying and the media is allowed to release the partial results as they come in. this has made it hard for mass rigging and reduced suspicion of foul play.

This explains why there is always no post- election violence and the usual comment by the observers that “the election was free and fair”. Those who think the observers always say the same thing everywhere should read their comments on the Kenyan elections.
