A section of legislators have asked the Electoral Commission to extend the voter verification exercise that ended on Monday the 28th of October.
They argued that many of their voters were not aware of the exercise.
MPs led by Geoffrey Macho of Busia Municipality, Florence Namayanja of Bukoto East, Luttamaguzi Ssemakula of Nakaseke South among others said the exercise has been marred with a lot of irregularities.
They pinned the village NRM chairpersons and security personnel of using the exercise to delete some opposition members from the register.
They called upon the EC to extend the exercise in addition to sensitising the electorate on the importance of verifying their names in the voter’s register.
Despite the MPs pleas, the Electoral Commission said the eight day exercise was successful.
The electoral body said millions of voters embraced the exercise.
Jotham Taremwa, the EC spokesperson said the exercise was an overwhelming success.
He said among other reasons, it was aimed at weeding out dead persons and people who had shifted from the areas.
He assured those that missed out on checking their names that another opportunity will be availed when registration of new voters kicks off next month.
