Voting in the National Resistance Movement primaries for directly elected Member of Parliament in Chua East Constituency, Kitgum district has been postponed. 

The election that began well was prematurely stopped after one aspirant\'s name was found on a different ballot paper. Lucy Rose Achan, who is contesting for the NRM flag for Chua East Constituency instead appeared on the ballot paper for district woman MP.

Kitgum district NRM registrar, Cyrus Odongkene says the election has now been postponed.

///Cue in: “In Chua East Constituency……

Cue out: “…….communicate that date.”///

Achan and Phoebe Aber Luwum are aspiring for the seat currently held by Foreign Affairs State Minister, Henry Okello Oryem.

Voting for the district woman MP flag bearer was allowed to continue, despite the presence of Achan\'s name.

For other positions, 14 villages in the district had by press time not started voting, because their registers were missing.

Odongkene told URN he had called for a new consignment of voting materials from NRM regional headquarters in Gulu.
