The government through the ICT minister Judith Nabakooba has cautioned politicians against starting their campaigns following the nomination of various candidates around the country including Last week’s nominations of candidates for the parliamentary elections.
This was during the weekly press briefing of the Minister of ICT and National Guidance, Judith Nabakooba on Sunday.
“I would like to inform all candidates and the general public that it is not yet time for campaigning,” she said.
“The Electoral Commission is currently working on a campaign road map that will act as a guide for all candidates,” she said.
“The campaign road map is expected to be released soon and candidates are therefore advised to wait for guidance from Electoral Commission,” she added.
She also warned against holding activities such as open public campaigns and processions since the elections are being guided by the existing COVID-19 guidelines which prohibit an activity that brings together crowds.

“Most of the activities such as open public campaigns and processions are not acceptable,” she said.
“I therefore want to call upon all leaders to lead by example and avoid situations that put people’s lives at risk,” she added.
“Let us keep safe and be responsible citizens as we wait for the Electoral Commission to officially announce the campaign dates and program,” she said.
