Uganda's ruling party, opposition rubbish opinion poll

21 January 2016, 15:24 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - The ruling party and the opposition in Uganda have both rubbished the presidential election opinion poll which was released Wednesday.

The ruling party NRM says that the 51 per cent given to its candidate by the poll is unrealistic while the leading opposition party FDC said their 32 per cent rating was not commensurate with their big rallies.

NRM spokesman, Ofwono Opondo said: ''That opinion poll has given our candidate less votes than what is on the ground. Our candidate will get far more votes than what the opinion poll is suggesting.''

The spokesman of FDC, Semujju Nganda said that the opinion poll is a fabrication of NRM party meant to show that their candidate is ahead of all the others.

Nganda said: ''When you look at the big numbers of people who turn up at our rallies, it is unrealistic that our candidates has on 32 per votes.''

He said that Museveni pays his supporters and provides vehicles to ferry them from far to rally venues unlike Besigye who addresses locals.

Amama Mbabazi also rubbished the opinion poll.
