The Electoral Commission on Thursday declared UPC’s Sarah Aguti Nyangkori as the overall winner of the by-election.

Aguti won with 23,044 votes followed by NRM’s Janet Adongo who scored 14,001, and FDC’s Dr. Rose Mary Alwoc Ogwal emerged the third with 8,168 votes.

Akullo Esther Obot, an independent followed with 790 votes, NUP’s Harriet Ageno took the fifth position with 727 votes while another independent Arao Rebecca was in the last position with 439 votes.

He further told Dokolo residents to expect the best in social-economic development. Akena explains that the victory is part of UPC’s mobilization strategy ahead of the 2026 general elections.
