Kantinti Vows To Fight For His Parliamentary Seat

Forum for Democratic Change’s Apollo Kantinti is dissatisfied with the High Court decision that kicked him out of parliament.

Yesterday, High Court Judge Kaweesa Isabirye nullified Kantinti’s election as Member of Parliament representing Kyadondo East Constituency over non-compliance with electoral laws by the Electoral Commission.

The Judge found guilty the Wakiso District Returning Officer Sarah Bukirwa of disenfranchising voters and failure to ensure safe custody of election materials, which substantially affected the outcome of the elections.

However, Kantinti says the electoral offenses for which he is paying were committed by Electoral Commission and the District Returning Officer Sarah Bukirwa.

He has vowed to appeal against the court ruling.
