Electoral observers applaud polls technology
Electoral observers have fully applauded the commission for the new technology introduced ahead of the general elections though but caution the electoral commission to be mindful while using this new technology.
Addressing the press conference after the lauch of the new technology, the national coordinator Citizens Coalition For Electoral Democracy in Uganda (CEDDU), Crispy Kaheru expressed fears over the training time for those to use them coupled with lack of knowledge from voters on the introduced technology which would have the voters involved in mock work for the use of this technology.
He also says the electoral commission has a task to inform the voters how and what the technology is all about.
The electoral commission yesterday launched the biometric voter verification system that will be used to counter multiple voting to avert vote rigging.
