Ugandan opposition leaders issued a joint statement on Wednesday at Hotel Africana in the capital Kampala.
We will all agree that this kind of set has been used in some African countries like Kenya. In the 2017 general elections, ODM set up a tallying center where it would collect and relay results for the presidential candidate from all the polling stations.
Ugandan opposition parties will use the same system of technology to compute the results for the presidential candidates.
A list of Ugandan Opposition Parties.
- Alliance for National and Transformation
- People’s Government.
- Forum for Democratic Change (FDC)
- Democratic Party
- Uganda People’s Platform
- National Unity Platform
- Justice Forum
- Conservative party
At the same time, they agreed not to reveal where the location of the tallying center, how it would work, and when it would be established.
This is simply to avoid interference by the government, which allegedly known for sabotaging the opposition.
Interestingly, the Ugandan ruling party (The National Resistance Movement) is also working on setting up its own private tallying center in the capital Kampala.
It is alleged that Ugandan Electoral Commission refused to speak on the matter.
