EC to release final results of presidential elections today

KAMPALA, UGANDA: The Independent Electoral Commission of Uganda has confirmed that final results of the January 14 presidential elections will be released today (Thursday) morning.

The Commission has recently been soaked in criticism for delaying to release from all the 34,684 polling stations across the country with many saying such actions undermined the credibility of the election exercise.

“The Chairperson, Electoral Commission, Justice Simon Mugenyi Byabakama, will address the Press, today, Thursday 28th January, 2021 on the Final Results of the Presidential Elections 2021 and also address other issues under the Roadmap for 2021 General Elections,” reads part of notice received by Daily Express this morning.

“The briefing will be held at the EC Head Office, Jinja Road, Kampala, starting at 10:00am.”

In announcing the candidate Yoweri Museveni as the winner of the 2021 presidential elections, the Electoral Commission based on the results from 33,461 out of 34,684 polling stations, which had been fully received and verified before the expiry of 48 hours after closing of polls.

This means the results from 1,223 polling stations were never included in the total vote count announced on January 16.

The 33,461 polling stations, whose results were based to announce the winner, comprised 96.47% of the total number of polling stations across the country.
