Ms. Merab Kasande, Election Officer for Hoima District, reported that out of eight people who picked the nomination papers, only five were successfully nominated.
Two of the eight, Mr. John Quemara (who came third in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party primary) and Mr. Michael Baikagaba (an independent candidate) were not present for the nomination.
Additionally, the nomination of Ms. Susan Atukhula was canceled for failing to submit all required documents on time, and election officials were unable to verify the submissions by the 5 p.m. nomination deadline.
Ms Cassander mentioned that the five nominated candidates started campaigning last Friday and these campaigns will run until September 12. She encouraged all candidates to adhere to a coordinated campaign timetable.

His closest rival, Mr Muhumuza, received 8,897 votes. However, Mr. Muhumuza, who is also the Deputy Chairman of the NRM in Hoima, opted to run as an independent candidate, citing numerous irregularities in the party’s primary election.
