THE Electoral Commission has set July 9 and 10 as nomination dates for candidates who will contest for the district council chairperson of the troubled Kibaale district, reports Edris Kisambira. A statement by commission chairman Hajji Aziz Kasujja said the nomination would be conducted at the district headquarters beginning at 10:00am and would end at 5:00pm on each day. Kibaale district was thrown into a tense tribal clash following the election into office of Fred Ahaibwe Ruremera, a Mukiga, in a predominantly Banyoro area. He later stepped down from office following President Yoweri Museveni’s intervention. In a June 21 letter to the Kibaale district council speaker, Ruremera said, “In cognisance and desire to promote development, peace and harmony in the district, in appreciation that I want to attend to other issues of development both personal and public, in recognition that I will serve the district in not the distant future in any electable office, I hereby on this day, June 21, 2002, declare to step down from the position of chairperson of Kibaale district.” Guidelines for the nominations say an aspiring candidate must be a registered voter and present in person, a signed and commissioned nomination paper containing form EC1 signed by two persons nominating him or her as a candidate. Other forms to be filled are those detailing the candidate’s qualifications, income, assets and liabilities. The candidates should also present a list of 50 names of registered voters from each of at least two thirds of all the electoral areas in the district, three post-card size photographs and a non-refundable fee of sh200,000 in cash or bank draft to the district administration. Non-resident candidates are to write pledging to set up residence within six months of election. Ends
