The Electoral Commission has extended the compilation period for four days, starting June 14, 2022, and ending June 17, 2022.
In a statement issued on Monday, the Commission said the decision was informed by the higher number of applicants at some registration centres since the beginning of the exercise.
The Commission said it was at the request of key stakeholders that the period is considered for extension.
“Please note that the purpose of this extension is to provide an opportunity for all eligible women who have not yet registered to do,” EC Chairman, Justice Simon Byabakama said.
Justice Byabakama said the exercise will continue to be conducted at registration centres in each village/cell across the country throughout the extended period.
The ongoing registration is meant to enable all willing female residents aged 18 years and above to register in order to participate in the 2022 Women’s Councils and Committee Elections within their respective villages.
The compilation started on June 10, 2022, and was scheduled to close on June 13, 2022.
The period has, however, been extended. The Commission has, therefore, appointed Friday, June 17, 2022, as the cut-off date for the registration of female village residents.
“The registration of female residents in each village throughout Uganda will not be conducted after this date,” said Justice Byabakama.
