Electoral Commission Declares Matia Kasaija Unopposed For The Buyanja County Parliamentary Seat.

The Uganda Electoral Commission has declared the Minister of Finance Matia Kasaija unopposed for the Buyanja County Parliamentary seat in Kibale district.

The declaration was after his rival Paul Kyalimpa who was an independent candidate pulled out from the race.

This was confirmed by a letter dated December 7, 2020, signed by Ipeto Agrey James, Kibale District Returning Officer and addressed to the Chair of the Election Commission Justice Simon Byabakama, confirming receipt and consideration of Kyalimpa’s withdrawal.

“Accordingly, as a returning officer for Kibale electoral district, according to the Parliamentary Elections Act 2005 (as amended), I declare Hon Matia Kasaija of the National Resistance Movement NRM as a duly elected Member of Parliament for Buyanja constituency”, reads part of the letter.
