Opposition Forum for Democratic Change FDC has unveiled its roadmap for the election of party president slated on the 2nd of November.
addressing a news conference at the party headquarters, FDC’ deputy secretary general Harold Kaija said that registration of those interested will commence on10th July to 12 August this year, Nominations will be held on the 14th-15th of August, campaigns will commence on the 17th august to 31st of October and the elections will be on the 2nd of november the same day the delegetes conference will be held while the swearing in ceremony will be on the 3rd of November.
Kaija has implored those interested in the party presidency not to hesitate to join in the race as long as they have the prerequisites and ideas that will stir the party to its desired destiny.
in the same way Kaija has revealed that the party was given one slot for the east African legislative Assembly EALA representative just like the other political parties being represented in parliament.
However by close of business last week 21 people had picked the nomination forms including the party’ big wings including party’ secretary for mobilization Ingrid Turinawe, Hon. Kasiano Wadri, Wilberforce Kyambadde, Jobless brotherhood member Ojobile Augustine, Joseph Tindyebwa among others and this step will close today.
Despite their participation Kaija described the East African Community as a car that has not gone for wheel alignment since it has got no pro people agenda and standards.
He said EALA doesnt focus on governance, human rights and economic issues thus appealing to the yet to be elected legislaters to pick a leaf from ECOWAS which forced Gambia’ president Yahya Jammey off the country’ presidency.
meanwhile FDC has expressed concern over some elements of the regime that are arresting people they identify to have money to buy out themselves in kasese, accusing them of being royale guards.
its against that FDC cautioned that this might lead to another havoc in the rwenzori region thus appealing the relevant authority to take the necessary action.
