The National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate for Moroto Woman MP seat, Stella Atyang, nearly has both feet inside the 10th Parliament after being nominated unopposed by the Electoral Commission.

Atyang was the only candidate that Joyce Acan, the returning officer for Moroto district, nominated by the close of the nomination days on Friday.

She was accordingly declared elected unopposed by Acan.
The commission had set April 26 as the date for the by-election and campaigns were to commence on April 10 and stop on 25 of the same month.

The seat fell vacant following the death of former MP, Annie Logiel.

Logiel, who was the first time MP, died in February in Denmark where she had been flown for treatment.

She died of a tumour and was buried at her ancestral home in Nakapelimen village in Nadunget Sub-county, Moroto.
