Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) member Tolit Akecha Simon has been named as the National Unity Platform (NUP) flag-bearer in the upcoming Omoro County by-election.

The seat fell vacant last month following the death of MP and former Speaker Jacob Oulanyah.

On Monday, the NUP Election Management Committee vetted candidates who expressed interest in carrying the party’s flag for the Omoro County by-election.

The candidates that were vetted include; Alison Ramto Flavia, Kizza Oscar, Ochola Charles, Simon Toolit Akecha, and Secondo Okoth Abok.

The ruling NRM party also already picked late Oulanyah’s son, Andrew Ojok as their flagbearer. FDC is yet to front any candidate.

The Electoral Commission set May 26, 2022, as the date for the Omoro County by-election. According to the Electoral Commission road map, the nomination of candidates will take place from May 12 to May 13 at Omoro District Council Hall. The campaigns will take place from May 16 to 24.
