President Museveni has maintained the lead from the time they started announcing the provisional results early this morning. He started at 63.67% dropped to 61.75% in the second provisional results. The third pronouncement of the election results put the incumbent at 62.03% and now, he settles at 62.82% out of the 12,465 polling stations that have been announced so far.
Next in line is FDC's Dr. Kizza Besigye who has by the way been given a lift to his home for the third time in a row after trying to hold a press conference at the FDC offices in Najjanakumbi. Kizza Besigye has also maintained the second position with these percentages; 32.4%, 33.4%, 33.4% and 32.7%.
Out of 4,323,521 valid votes, President Museveni has garnered 2,715,915 and Dr. Kizza Besigye 1,415,708 which totals up to 4,131,623 leaving a balance of 191,858 that was split among the six candidates.
The only woman candidate in the race, Maureen Kyalya, has so far taken on Biraaro and Mabirizi in the last batch of provisional results that were released a while ago, we will be watching closely to see how the candidates fare in the hours leading up to the deadline for the final announcement.
In her home area, Jinja, she was the third after failing to beat Museveni and Besigye.
