Uganda: AU deploys observer mission for tomorrow's elections

[AEP] The African Union, yesterday, deployed a Short Term Observer's team to monitor Uganda’s presidential and parliamentary elections slated for Thursday.

The 41 short-term AU Election Observation Mission (AUEOM) to Uganda is made up of observers from some 28 African Union Permanent Representatives' Committee, Election Management Bodies, Civil Society Organisations, the Pan-African Parliament, and Independent Elections Experts. The observers, using computer tablets, will collect and convey election observation in real time.

“On the ground in their areas of deployment, observers will be expected to consult with the Electoral Commission, the Police, and other relevant stakeholders,” said the AU.

Polls will open on 7am local time and will close at 4pm. However, voters in queues at the polling stations before the 4pm deadline will be allowed to vote.
