IYOP mobilizes for peaceful elections
Youth leaders under their umbrella body – Interparty youth platform, (IYOP) are yet to conclude a country wide tour that is aimed at mobilizing the youth to rally for a peaceful election come 2016 as well as a peaceful post election period.
The revelation was made by Rukumbuka Brians Roberts one of the leaders at a gathering in Mbarara town at the independence park on Thursday.
IYOP is a cooperation framework of the youth leagues of seven major political parties in Uganda, namely: Conservative Party, Democratic Party, Forum for Democratic Change, Justice Forum, National Resistance Movement, People’s Progressive Party and the Uganda People’s Congress. In founding the platform the youth leaders were inspired by the need to provide effective channels for improved and meaningful youth participation in Uganda’s political and development processes.
