Constitutional Court To Rule On MP Sekikubo Objections

The Constitutional Court is today expected to make a ruling on the objections by Lwemiyaga County MP Theodore Sekikubo challenging a decision of a magistrate to refer a ruling for interpretation an election matter.

Last month, Masaka Chief Magistrate, Samuel Munobe petitioned the court seeking interpretation whether his order directing the Electoral Commission not to gazette Sekikubo was beyond his powers.

Through his lawyers, Sekikubo is challenging the magistrate’s decision to make an order on an issue which did not form part of the pleadings.

The case resulted from an earlier petition that sought to overturn Sekikubo’s election victory without giving him a hearing.

Patrick Nkalubo petitioned the court in Masaka seeking a vote recount of the Parliamentary Elections ballots.
