CCEDU Pokes Holes In EC’s Biometric Equipment

The Citizens Coalition for Electoral Democracy (CCEDU) has expressed concern over the timing for the introduction of the biometric equipment by the Electoral Commission.
This comes days after the electoral body unveiled a set of biometric equipment meant to help check multiple voting on polling day.
However CCEDU coordinator Crispy Kaheru says while the intentions may be right, the timing and communication about this new technology leaves many questions unanswered.
He further argues that having such equipment alone cannot guarantee a clean and malpractice free election.

Ugandans go to the polls on February 18th to choose a president and Members of Parliament.
