National Resistance Movement lawyer Hussein Kashillingi has revealed that they are going to handle National Unity Platform’s election petition in the best way because they are in it for a win.

Hussein is one of the more than forty (40) lawyers that the National resistance Movement has hired to defend their presidential election win that is being challenged by National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine.

The NUP party lost an application that sought to amend their election petition in which they challenge Museveni’s victory in the January 14th election which NUP insists was rigged in favour of the NRM.

Kashillingi said that the win awarded to the NRM as a denial of the amendment of the NUP’s election petition is just round one of the many wins they anticipate from this legal boxing-match.

“We are in this to win. The application was dismissed, and yes, you can say this is win round one. You can amend your petition within the time given. The time had run out.”

Hussein also added that the NRM legal team did not block any evidence that wa fronted by the NUP legal side and they (NRM) want all the evidence to come out although none has so far fronted by the NUP.

“We haven’t blocked any evidence, we want all evidence to come out, but no evidence has been brought out even in the main petition”
