By Alfred Wasike THE Second Deputy Premier and Minister of Internal Affairs, Brigadier Moses Ali, has challenged any presidential aspirant to address a public rally before nomination and approval of the Electoral Commission. He said, "He or she will be arrested immediately". "We challenge any of them to hold a public rally before they are nominated and approved by Kasujja's team (the Electoral Commission) and they will see what happens. The law is going to take its natural course," Ali said yesterday. He added: "I have heard that Besigye, Sebaggala and even Awori are planning to defy the Government directive. I hear they are saying that I am joking. Let any of them hold a public rally before nomination and approval by the Electoral Commission and they will see what the law can do. "They will never know what hit them. We are tired of this anarchy. We are not going to tolerate such chaos. We shall act decisively and in the interest of national security, he said." Moses Ali said presidential aspirants were only permitted to consult their supporters. "Let them hire halls and consult quietly. Of course the law requires that a presidential candidate must raise at least 100 signatures of voters from at least 30 districts. But they don't need to hold public rallies to solicit for those signatures," Ali added. On Monday, Moses Ali issued "the last warning" against aspirants defying the ban following reports that Awori, the Samia Bugwe North MP, had addressed a rally in his constituency on Sunday. Ends.
