Stella Obel Norah has been elected Chairperson Women Council as NRM flag bearer Tororo district.
In the elections contacted at the NRM offices yesterday, Obel who contested for the position with Jessica Dambio garnered 10 votes beating her colleague who got seven votes out of the 17 ballots cast in the women council electoral college.
Lillian Athieno went through unopposed as the Vice Chairperson; Irene Wanditi became the Secretary Finance after scoring 11 votes beating Lucy Achieng who got three votes.
However, there were disagreements when some women proposed that Wanditi and Achieng step down in favor of Dambio in the position of Secretary Finance.
Dambio was later given the position of Secretary Publicity as Dorothy Athieno stepped down in her favor. This was done through consensus.
The women there after continued to the Electoral Commission Offices with their Declaration forms and yellow cards to be nominated for the National Elections due to take place on 13th of this month.
Meanwhile the Registrar NRM Tororo district Joseph Kadokech applauded the women for practicing mature politics asking them to continue with the same spirit.
