Uganda: Incumbent Museveni takes early lead in election

[ AEP] Initial results from the Electoral Commission (EC) of Uganda on Friday shows that sitting president Yoweri Museveni has taken an early lead in Thursday’s elections.

According to the EC, out of the 2.32 million votes tallied from 6,448 polling stations so far, Museveni has 1.36 million of it. This gives Museveni 61.75 percent of the votes counted with leading opposition managing a 33.47 percent so far.

There are a total of 28,010 polling stations and results from the remaining 21,562 can change the outcome of the polls. Experts have tipped Museveni to win the elections.

The presidential race is seen as a three-way battle between long-term incumbent President Yoweri Museveni of the National Resistance Movement and two top opposition candidates – Kizza Besigye (Forum for Democratic Change) and Amama Mbabazi (Go Forward). There were 8 candidates in the presidential race with only 1 female.
