THE Electoral Commission (EC) has disqualified 13 candidates for youth/people with disabilities (PWDs) councillorship at sub-county, town, municipal divisions, municipality and district levels, reports Richard Mutumba. The EC deputy chairperson, Flora Nkurukenda, said yesterday in a statement that the nominees were disqualified either due to technical discrepancies in their nominations or failure to fulfil the legal requirements for nomination. PWDs whose nomination was disqualified included Henry Wakodo (Busia), Gertrude Kyomugisha (Bushenyi), Bosco Wanoli (Sironko), Sarah Babirye (Masaka), and Hadija Biribawa (Iganga). The youth whose nomination was also nullified included Denty Mwaka (Kitgum); Albert Odoi (Mbale); Robert Tweyambe (Rukungiri); Farida Ndaula Batenda (Masaka); Ismael Kiimpi (Mpigi); Charles Sooka (Kiboga); Gerald Woniala (Sironko) and Siraj Tugume (Ntungamo). Nkurukenda said the commission cleared 15 PWDs and youth whose candidature had been contested. They were from Iganga, Tororo, Mbale, Rakai, Iganga, Soroti, Wakiso, Ntungamo, Kalangala, Jinja and Kanungu. One youth candidate from Masaka withdrew his candidature. Meanwhile, the Commission yesterday summoned 21 candidates to its offices in Kampala, whose nominations were challenged. The candidates were required to go to the EC in person, ready to submit documentary proof of age, copies of nomination papers and evidence of registration as voters. Ends
