The Court of Appeal has upheld the High court judgment nullifying the election of Apollo Kantinti as the Kyadondo East Constituency Member of Parliament.
The three Court of Appeal Judges concurred with the judgment of Justice Henry Kaweesa, saying the elections didn’t comply with electoral laws, which substantially affected the final results.
The Court of Appeal Judges are Richard Buteera, Cheborion Balishaki and Paul Mugamba. They ordered El7ectoral Commission to conduct by elections for Kyadondo East Constituency.
The Judgment followed an application filed by Sitenda Sebalu, the former NRM candidate challenging the decision by Wakiso District Registrar, Sarah Bukirwa and the Electoral Commission to declare Katinti winner despite the irregularities that marred the election.
In his application, Sebalu argued that results from seven polling stations were excluded from the final tally. He also argued that there were errors in tallying results from some areas like Kabubu polling station, which affected his chance of winning the elections.
