The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in Kasese district, will today file five petitions to the High Court and Chief Magistrate's court, seeking fresh elections and a possible vote re-count.
The petitions stem from the massive election irregularities that shrouded the parliamentary end Local council five elections in the district.
FDC lost the Kasese Municipality, Busongora County South and Bukonzo West to the ruling NRM party.
On Saturday, Christopher Kibanzanga, who lost his election bid for the LC 5 seat to NRM's Lt.Col. Mawa Muhindo, told FDC party supporters in Kassese that the petitions are ready and nothing will hold them back.
Kibanzanga said that the party would seek a court order to annul the election results and also to recount all the votes cast.
Kibanzanga cited cases where the Kasese Resident District Commissioner's office was involved in the intimidation and harassment of voters during the LC 5 elections.

The other petitioners are Moses Bwambale Syahuka, Jackson Mbaju who lost Busongora South to Kaffude Boaz and Biira Lucy Kabanyoro who trailed Dr. Chrispus Kiyonga in Bukonzo West.

Kibanzanga declared war on the NRM government saying that the will of the people will be the only way to rule Uganda.
The outspoken legislator also attacked his brother, the Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere, for congratulating the ruling party upon its victory in the presidential elections.
He told his supporters that the FDC party supporters in Kasese were not happy with Mumbere's conduct.
NRM won 23 seats in the district council against the 15 seats that were scooped by the FDC and two independents.
