FUFA is to go to the polls on 5th August in Masindi to elect a new president.

The presidential election is preceded by district football association (DFA), regional football association (RFA) and special interest group elections.

The new FUFA electoral committee headed by Sam Bakiika announced on today that they rolled off activities ahead of the elections starting with nomination of DFA candidates from April 10-20.

Presidential candidates will be nominated at the committee's secretariat at FUFA House on June 10.

According to the vice chairman of the committee, Yusuf Awuye, for the first time a FUFA presidential candidate is expected to submit proposed executive committee members during the nomination process for verification.

If found fit the candidate will then be declared legitimate for the election alongside his team of 12 proposed executive members on June 23.

Only the incumbent Moses Magogo has publicly declared interest to contest the office for a second term while his predecessor Lawrence Mulindwa is widely believed to be his only challenger.

Magogo was Mulindwa's vice president at the time the latter shocked his executive and voluntarily declined to contest elections in 2013.

The committee has replaced an earlier one led by Patrick Okanya who will now be appointed by the AGM every time there is election to conduct.

The committee has Bakika, Awuye and members Habib Aluma, James Okodi, John Adupa, Micheal Igole, Julius Semanda, Geoffrey Kintu, Stanley Kinene and Edgar Watson.
