Two of the ten political parties lined up for deregistration have petitioned the Constitutional Court demanding for the disbandment of the Dr Badru Kigundu, Electoral Commission.
Through, Tusasirwe advocates, the Reform party and Movement volunteer mobilizers’ organization argue that, the current Electoral Commission is partisan.
In the petition, the parties argue that the current members of the commission have a conflict of interest since they come from the same party with President Yoweri Museveni who appoints them.
The petitioners want the Kigundu led team to step down and a new commission is appointed in accordance with the multiparty political dispensation.
They also want the constitutional court to declare as unconstitutional the re-appointment and retention of Kiggundu, his deputy and 5 other commissioners.
Court is yet to summon the Attorney General and the Electoral Commission, who are listed as respondents to file their responses.
