Amuli seeks leave on Sohe petition results

Amuli won the Sohe seat from Delilah Gore in the 2017 general elections.

Gore filed the petition disputing his win and was successful after a trial was conducted in Popondetta, Northern Province.

Justice Iova Geita ordered a recount to take place from May 21 with results to be presented to the Popondetta National Court.

Amuli is now seeking leave of the Supreme Court to review the decision of 23 March.

The application will be moved on 7 May.

Meantime, Gore’s lawyers intend to file an application to dismiss the leave application.

Oro MP’s welcomed back home

The leaders were received at Girua airport by Sohe traditional dancers and led to the State House in Popondetta town.

Also present at the airport to welcome the leaders were members of the disciplinary forces, public servants and other distinguished guests.

It is also a significant occasion as it was the first official engagement that all three Oro MPs were seen together since their election wins.
