BY: Eyalama In News, Politics On

The Uganda Police Spokesperson CP Enanga Fred has noted that Police participated in a meeting called by the Electoral Commission (EC), to help streamline the conduct of consultative meetings by Aspiring Presidential Candidates.

In an official statement dated January 10, 2020, Enanga said the meeting was intended to remind the selected stakeholders from the EC, Police and other aspiring presidential candidates, about their respective roles during the consultative process.

“At the end of the meeting, members agreed on the following areas; that there will be no processions during the consultations; that the Electoral Commission would formulate regulations, Under Section 88 of the Presidential Elections Act; and that the ten (10) areas proposed by “People Power”, be formally presented before the committee, for further discussions and way forward in the best interests of the Electoral Commission, Police and “People Power” group,” he said.

According to Enanga, representatives from the “People Power” group chose to deliberately misinform the public, when they presented their draft proposals as the official position of the committee.

“As we wait for the official statement from the Electoral Commission, we would like to remind and reassure all political actors and groups that the police are not there to victimise them,” reads an excerpt.

Enanga said, “We pledge to continue upholding the highest standards of electoral policing, affording equal rights and respect to all politicians.  We also call upon them to respect and observe the Law in the conduct of their political activities.”
