Today the Court of Appeal will commence the conferencing for the hearing of 81 election appeals.

Conferencing is where lawyers of both parties agree on issues to be determined by court before the case file is forwarded to a panel of three justices for hearing.

The Court of Appeal Registrar, Susan Kanyange will lead a team of four Registrars in the process. They include Dr. Alex Mushabe Karocho, Lillian Bucyana, and Henry Twinomuhwezi to ensure timely conferencing for the cases.

Kanyange says the plan is to ensure that the process is concluded within 21 days before actual hearings take off.

Among the petitions to be handled is an appeal filed by Julius Galisonga, challenging the decision of the High Court to dismiss his election petition against Abdul Katuntu.

The Conferencing schedule also includes the application of Joyce Bagala Ntwatwa challenging the high court decision quashing her victory against Nabakooba Judith Nalule, the Minister of Lands.
