Timothy Batuwa has been declared the Forum for Democratic Change -FDC party flag bearer for the Jinja West MP seat.

Last month, Batuwa was declared the winner with 47 votes against Paul Kawanguzi's 27 votes. However, the results were nullified on grounds that the elections were marred with irregularities.

On Saturday, the party’s electoral commission ordered for a repeat of the elections.

On Wednesday Batuwa again defeated Kawanguzi with 55 votes against four.

However, Kawanguzi argued that the party should have disqualified Batuwa from the race on allegations of electoral malpractices within the party.

Batuwa promised to reconcile with Kawanguzi and strengthen the party's political grip in Jinja City ahead of next year's elections.

Reagan Okumu, the Jinja district FDC election officer says that they are committed to organising free and fair elections to promote internal party democracy.
