As you know the way we operate, we will be taking what is necessary to different Sub-counties, from where they will be picked tomorrow morning to different polling stations,” Bukenya said.

“We came up with a transparent arrangement for this election, and we will let it known to different candidates and their agents because we are scheduled to have the last meeting, on how we will actualize the smooth transportation of these voting materials, and also the selection process of observers and agents will be done today,” Bukenya added.
