THE Democratic Party presidential candidate, Norbert Mao, has said the Electoral Commission should get ready for physical head counting of voters, if the NRM rigs the elections.

“If your Museveni and Kiggundu attempt to steal votes, I shall mobilise the voters across the country for physical head counting,” Mao said.

Mao said he does not trust the commission, headed by Eng. Badru Kiggundu.

He said voters should be ready to come with voters’ cards for physical counting.
Mao said Uganda needs a civilised democracy where there is a line separating the Government and the President.

“We need a new design of running this country, the President has the right and duty, but all programmes should not be attributed to him,” he said.

Mao said he would beat Museveni for top office because of his cross-cutting background and his support among the youth.

He labelled the Inter-party cooperation an alliance without a symbol, alluding it to three men fighting over a woman, who tells them to go and negotiate among themselves, saying she would be willing to take anybody they agree on.

Mao accused SUUBI of practicing tribal politics, saying they are not supporting him because he is not a Muganda. He promised to fight corruption in Uganda.
Mao said corruption has led to poor road network and shortage of drugs in hospitals.

He urged the people to shun candidates who say they will bring development because they are close to the President.
“Look for quality leaders with a good record and people who do not preach hatred,” Mao advised.

I do not think there is any person close to the president apart from his wife,” he said amid applause
