Uganda opposition says "multiple irregularities" in poll
KAMPALA, Feb 23 (Reuters) Uganda's opposition said there had been ''multiple irregularities'' including voter intimidation and missing ballot papers during today's election, and it was mulling a legal challenge.
''It has gone very, very badly,'' Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) spokesman Sam Akaki told Reuters. ''The government does not want free and fair elections.'' Akaki said the ''illegal'' presence of soldiers close to polling stations was the worst offence, but also cited the use of ink ''that can be washed within two seconds'', multiple voting by soldiers and missing papers in opposition strongholds.
