PARLIAMENTARY elections loser for the Lira Municipality seat, Sam Engola, has petitioned the High Court to nullify the election of Cecilia Ogwal, MP for the area. Engola's lawyer, Bob Kasango of Bitangaro and Company Advocates, said he had evidence that Ogwal's supporters beat and intimidated his voters who got scared to vote. He said there were anomalies in the voters' register which encouraged malpractices. The letter, whose copies were sent to the Lira returning officer, and court registrar, was signed by Engola, his campaign chairman J.P. Obonyo and Lawrence Egole, a member of his task force. Engola lost to Ogwal by 1,314 votes. This is the third time Engola loses to Ogwal. Ends
