Dombo further complimented the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), as well as other stakeholders for conducting proper civic and voting education.
"We noticed and observed that civic and voter education was quite high. Add to the fact that political camps preached for de-escalation and peaceful elections. That's the difference between Kenya and Uganda," stated Dombo.
NRM has been the ruling political party in Uganda since 1986. The NRM currently has majority in the Ugandan parliament. In the 2016 general election, the party won 293 out of 426 seats, and Museveni was re-elected president with 56.62% of the votes.
