Those whose nomination was cancelled include Sophie Malinga, Dinah Eveline Akongot, Jessica Asio, Naume Ekwenare, Ketty Akello, and Mary Goretti Kitaka.

They include Hellen Adoa, the Serere Woman MP and State Minister for Fisheries, Usuk County MP Peter Ogwang, who has opted to represent the newly created Ngariam County and the Bukedea Woman MP, Anita Among. The other is Emilly Sheila Amulo, the aspirant for the Soroti Woman MP seat.
