FDC to present signatures today
The opposition Forum for Democratic Change-FDC will today present the signatures required for nomination of their presidential flag-bearer for the 2021 race.
The Presidential Elections Act requires aspiring candidates to collect at least 100 signatures from two-thirds of the total number of districts in the country (98 districts) as a precondition for their nomination.
As of last week, only 14 aspiring candidates including NRM’s Y Tibuhaburwa K Museveni, NUP’s Robert Kaygulanyi Ssentamu and independent Lt. Gen. (RTD) Henry Tumukunde, among others had presented their required signatures.
FDC officials will first meet at the party headquarters at 10 am and later proceed to the Electoral Commission headquarters.
