FDC to hold National Council, vows to shun IPOD summit


By Ronald Kabuye
Opposition Forum for Democratic Change FDC Party will from 6th to 7th this month hold the National Council meeting at party headquarters to come up with a mobilization calendar for the next general elections.
Addressing a press conference at the FDC headquarters the party National Chairperson Ambassador Waswa Birigwa said the two days shall be used to discuss issues concerning the party and forge a way forward.
Unlike in the past annual FDC National Council meeting, this time the party’ s elders shall participate in it in order to offer guidance to party.
The meeting shall be held under tge theme “power to the people; strengthening and empowering FDC structures to accelerate transition.”
The National Council consists of all FDC Chairperson across the country.

Asked whether the meeting is not intended to seal the elimination of Gen. Muntu allies, Birigwa dismissed the notion before adding that they are only reassessing their principles  in order to get the right people to work with to oust the ruling government without any contractions.

In the same way Birigwa said they will not participate in the coming Inter Party Organisation for Dialogue IPOD summit since they were not involved in the process that has led to it.

FDC has also said it has not received any formal communication banning them from holding rallies in the western part of the country.
Birigwa advised police to engage FDC in order to resolve what seems to be a difficult situation between the two parties.
