FDC Electoral Commission Hits Back as Dissident Nabilah
As the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) grassroots elections come to the end, the party is experiencing several petitions from different party members over the increased irregularities that have infested the entire exercise.
Addressing a weekly press conference at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi, the party Electoral Commission Chairman, Dan Mugarura stated that the party grassroots elections that are ending by Wednesday have faced a lot of challenges especially in Kampala.
“The commission is currently handling several petitions but we wish to handle them as a family, emphasizing consensus and building harmony among members,” Mugarura told the press.
On the same note, Mugarura attacked FDC leader, Nabilah Naggayi Sempala who took to the media spilling all elections irregularities within Kampala.
Mugarura ruled out resigning as the party EC chairman for failure to organize free and fair elections, noting that there are no petitions against him as an individual but rather the process which isn’t enough evidence to cause him step down from the position.
He further revealed that unlike other party’s Delegates Conferences (DC) that have been taking place in Namboole Stadium, this year’s special DC will be held from UMA Show grounds main exhibition hall on Friday, June 12.
He observed that there are 35 positions ready for contestation which include among others; four slots of Vice President, party chairperson and four slots for deputies, General Treasury and three slots for deputies, Legal advisor, party Mobilizer and Chairman Electoral Commission.
