    President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni recently extended the term of Justice Simon Mugenyi Byabakama, maintaining him as the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC). This decision, outlined in a letter to Speaker of Parliament Anita Annet Among on January 5, signals the president’s confidence in Byabakama’s leadership.

    Hajjati Aisha Lubega was also reappointed as the deputy chairperson, and Stephen Tashobya will continue to serve as a commissioner.

    Additionally, the president made new appointments, introducing four commissioners to the Electoral Commission. Among them are Dr. Sallie Simba Kayunga, a lecturer at Makerere University, Robert Kasule Ssebunya, former Nansana Municipality MP, Anthony Akol, former Kyoga County MP, and Pamela Etonu Okudi, the former acting head of administration at the Electoral Commission.

    To complete the process, both the retained and newly appointed commissioners will present their CVs to Parliament for thorough vetting and confirmation.
