The chairperson of NRM electoral commission Dr Tanga Odoi has confirmed that Sanjay Tanna, who contested against Captain Mike Mukula, in the just concluded NRM party leadership elections for the position of Vice-Chairperson for Eastern region, is contesting the results.
Tanna has challenged the variations in the results tallied in all regions against the official total number of delegates who participated in the elections.
NRM EC boss Dr Tanga Odoi said he had received the petition and will review it.
At a press conference Tuesday, Tanna said he was sceptical of the results citing variations in the figures.
He said there was also an unknown reason why the results delayed to be declared.
He asked the party chairman and secretary general to investigate the matter.
Sanjay Tanna polled 4,162 votes losing to Mike Mukulu who garnered 5,818 votes.
He now wants a thorough audit of the election results although he is mindful of the peace and harmony within the party.
