The National Electoral Commission (NEC) has called for interested candidates to express their interest in mayoral positions by submitting testimonials to replace mayors and vice mayors that resigned recently.

The announcement follows recent wave of mayoral resignations that started on Tuesday where top officials from Burera, Gicumbi, Musanze, Karongi, Ngororero, Nyamasheke, Rubavu, Rutsiro, Gisagara, Muhanga, Ngoma and Rwamagana districts resigned on account of failure to deliver.

“NEC informs interested candidates meeting requirements that applications to join advisory councils will be received from 9th 13th September 2019,” reads the announcement signed by NEC Chairman, Prof. Mbanda Kalisa.

District officials including the mayor are elected by the advisory council comprised of sectors’ representatives, youth and women, private sector and of disabled people’s representatives.
