    The Inter-Party Coalition (IPC) in Uganda has rejected the outcome of last week’s presidential and parliamentary elections citing widespread bribery by the NRM, intimidation of voters, and multiple voting.

    In a joint statement presented by Dr. Kizza Besigye (FDC president) flanked by Mr. Olara Otunnu (UPC), Mr. Samuel Lubega (Independent) and DP’s Nobert Mao, Besigye said the electoral process was a sham and the IPC will not recognize any government formed out of these elections.

    Besigye cited among other reasons for rejection of the results as threat of violence using the security forces, preticking of ballots and ballot stuffing, ghost polling stations and disfranchisement of voters among others.

    The statement signed by four former presidential aspirants called on Ugandans to rise and peacefully protest against the outcome of the 2011 elections and demand no further fraudulent local government elections be conducted by the existing Electoral Commission.

    They also demanded that fresh, free and fair general elections be organized under an independent, competent and representative Electoral Commission after a clean voters register has been compiled and uniform voter identification has been established.

    “We call upon all our leaders in every district to organize and address peaceful public rallies and matches to call for fresh elections under the terms above,” urged Besigye quoting articles one and three of the Uganda Constitution.
