MP wants district registrars held accountable for electoral errors

By Vision Reporter

The bill if tabled in Parliament will help reduce on errors

Bukoto Midwest Member of Parliament Joseph Muyomba wants the house to amend the Parliamentary Elections Act so that district registrars are liable for whichever electoral offence they commit and results into a by-election.

Muyomba said in this Private Members Bill, any district registrar who makes a grave mistake that brings about the falsification of one's victory should be charged as an individual.

Muyomba added that this bill if tabled in Parliament will help reduce on errors that the district registrars commit and may affect the victory of the candidate.
