The Electoral Commission has announced extension of the compilation of village women residents register.
The exercise which commenced on Friday 10th June 2022 was scheduled to close last evening 13th June 2022 but has now been extended to 17th June 2022.
The commission’s chairperson Justice Simon Byabakama says the extension has been prompted by the higher numbers of applicants at some registration centers since the beginning of this exercise, and requests from key stakeholders in the electoral process.
He says after this 4 day extension there will not be any further extension as the commission’s spokesperson Paul Bukenya emphasizes.
The exercise of compiling a Register of Women Residents in each village/cell across Uganda is to enable all willing female residents aged 18 years and above, to register in order to participate in Women Councils and Committees Elections, 2022, within their respective villages.
