Kassiano Wadri an Independent candidate is set to be the next MP for Arua Municipality after leading from the preliminary results that are coming in from various polling stations.
Results from 23 polling stations in Arua Hill division indicate that Kassiano is leading with 1,933 compared to Nusura Tiperu’s 1,091.
Bruce Musema of the FDC could finish as a distant third or even forth because Robert Ejiku, another independent candidate is proving stronger than the FDC man.
The hotly contested election saw one person shot dead during the last day of the campaigns that attracted President Museveni, Robert Kyagulanyi and Kizza Besigye to canvass support for their respective candidates.
Kassiano who has since Monday been in jail together with his chief mobilizer Kyagulanyi is set to have the last laugh when the Electoral Commission announces the final results.
