The National Unity Platform (NUP) Parliamentary flag bearer for Northern City Division in Mbale City has run to Mbale High Court seeking for an outright declaration as the duly elected MP.
Ivan Masaaba who is being represented by Wameli Anthony was in court yesterday 15th March 2021 where he filed his petition.
While speaking to the Media at Mbale high court premises yesterday after submitting his petition, Masaaba said he has been forced to petition the results because he is not satisfied with the declaration.
He revealed that his petition wants the high court to declare him as a winner basing on the actual results got. He also wants the Electoral Commission to be punished for failing to conduct free and fair elections.
Masaaba also says that during election time anomalies like pre-ticking of ballots, beating of his supporters among others were rampant and he has evidence.
Seith Wambende of the National Resistance Movement party was declared victorious in Northern City Division after polling 9,856 votes against Ivan Masaba’s 9,413.
