Ugandan election commission lacks 'independence': EU observers

People suspected of being involved in protests sit in the back of a vehicle after being arrested by police in Kampala on February 19, 2016 during the presidential election voteEuropean Union observers on Saturday criticised Uganda’s elections, saying the electoral commission lacked transparency and accusing the police of using heavy-handed tactics in detaining an opposition candidate. The EU report comes as President Yoweri Museveni eyes a fifth term in power with a clear lead, hours before expected final poll results, with his closest rival under police guard at home. The election was disrupted in the capital Kampala by the late arrival of ballot boxes and papers and angry demonstrations by frustrated voters that police quelled using tear gas.
