Voting in the National Resistance Movement party grassroots elections has flopped for the second time at various polling stations in Nakawa division because of lack of voting materials.
NRM grassroots elections that were earlier scheduled for Tuesday were postponed to today, to enable the party headquarters dispatch voting materials.
By this afternoon voting had not yet started at various polling stations in Nakawa division visited by URN.
Andrew Bwanika, a resident of Katende zone in Bukesa parish told URN that he arrived at the polling station at 8am but couldn't any polling officials.
Bwanika says that he was told by other voters that the elections could not take place because no voting materials had been delivered.
He expressed disappointment saying that he had asked his boss for day off to cast his vote in vain.
Bwanika said that unless the party leadership addresses the anomaly voters are likely to give up on the party elections because it is a voluntary exercise.
He said voting at the other polling stations in Bukesa parish had also failed to take place because of similar problems.
URN saw several disappointed voters standing in groups pondering their next move.
Hassan Wasswa Galiwango, NRM secretary in charge of youth mobilization could explain why some polling stations had not yet received voting materials.
Galiwango said that voting materials were dispatched to all polling stations last night.
