Short summary:
Civil Procedure, Actions and applications
Headnote and holding:

The court held that the constitution must be
read as a whole and as an ambulatory
instrument for the good governance, liberties,
welfare and protection of all persons in
Uganda. That s 60 has to be interpreted strictly
and the route taken by the respondent could not
be supported as the petition was filed out of
time. That it is only after there has been
compliance with s 60 of the Parliamentary
Elections Act that any petitioner can carry out
what is required by s 86.
