DP sets deadline for Parliamentary Aspirants to Return nomination forms
The Democratic Party (DP) has set Monday September 7, as the closing date of returning nomination forms for Parliamentary seats.
The DP Secretary General Gerald Siranda Black disclosed that this slight extension was prompted by huge demand for the Party’s ticket, adding that the Organization’s top management has constituted a team of experts to scrutinize the particulars of those who wish to vie for legislative positions.
This, he said, was necessary to avoid last minute disqualification of their candidates on grounds that they lack academic credentials.
In 2016, Wakayima Musoke Nsereko, Nansana Municipality MP and DP loyalist was thrown out of parliament for discrepancies in his official documents.
Two years later, Deo Hasubi Njoki the Party’s candidate in the LC V By-elections was also barred at the last minute for not being a registered voter.
