The ruling NRM party has pushed its primaries elections by another day from Monday to Tuesday, October 27, 2015.

The announcement was made last evening by NRM electoral commission deputy chairperson, Arimpa Kyigyagi.

He did not give reasons for the postponement.

Speaking to press over the weekend, Kigyagi said elections for Special Interest Groups would take place on October 29, Youths on October 30, then the delegates conference that runs from 1st to 3rd November.

He warned candidates who show gross misconduct that the EC has a mandate to cancel them from the process.

“Security has been mobilized so we deliver peaceful free and fair elections. We will not allow those who kick ballot boxes,” he said.

He said results will be announced at every polling station and votes will be counted there.

“In each district we have a van, well secured to deliver polling material. Elections begin at 8am and end at 4pm.”

He urged candidates and their officials to desist from interfering in the elections.

“If you have a complaint, let us know.”

He further emphasises that security would be appropriately deployed to curb violence experienced in the last elections.

“We have trained 400 supervisors. Each district will have at least two supervisors to take care of the process.”

He added: “In this era, no one should be beaten for his/her choice. Militias will be dealt with.”
