Hearing of Kabuleeta’s application fails to kick off
The hearing of an application filed by veteran journalist Joseph Kabuleta in which he is seeking to halt the 2021 scientific elections has failed to kick off.
This is after Patrick Kandeebe, the lawyer representing the Electoral Commission raised a preliminary objection saying Kabuleeta’s case was filed prematurely.
Kandeebe has told court that the applicant has to first raise his complaint before the Electoral Commission before seeking court’s intervention.
The judge has now ordered the Electoral Commission to file its objection to the application in writing and serve the parties before August 14th 2020.
Kabuleeta, through his lawyers of Walyemera and Company Advocates, wants the court to order the electoral body to recall the guidelines and election roadmap it issued on June 16th.
