The top two vote-getters in the contest for the parliament seat from Buhaguzi in the Hoima district are accusing each other of vote-rigging.
The accusations are the result of 100 more ballots being counted in one polling station than the number of registered voters.
Julius Junjura, who lost to Tom Kyahurwenda, said that Kyahurwenda knew he was weak in the Ruhunga polling station, so he rigged the outcome there and at other polling stations.
Junjura said he plans to go to court over the issue.
Kyahurwenda, however, claims the discrepancy was caused by Junjura.
Kyahurwenda polled 14,204 while Junjura got 13,633 votes. Three others got less that 2,500 votes combined.
Kyahurwenda said he can prove that Junjura stuffed in ballot box at Ruhunga.
Reportedly, that center records show 700 voters, but after tallying, the total came to 800 ballots cast.
He also criticized Junguda's supporters.
