Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) member, Alice Alaso, has announced the end of her term as the party’s Secretary General.
Alaso made the announcement on Monday while addressing the party’s National Council meeting held at the Najjanankumbi based headquarters.
“This is the 9th council meeting of the FDC. This for me is extremely special as it will be the last for me to present the Party status report,” she told the members.
Alaso is not expected to stand again for a third term on the same position after assuring the NC meeting that this was indeed her very last time.
Also the Serere district Woman Member of Parliament, Alaso did not disclose as to whether she intends to take on another leadership position in the party.
She is expected to leave office on June 11, 2015.
Addressing the NC, she said the country needed to be delivered from dictatorship and refocused on a culture of institutional governance.
“For us to give Uganda democracy we must have it internally, for us to give Uganda institutional governance the FDC must have it itself and function as an institution. Friends it can only start with us.”
She said when FDC launched the Party plat form Uganda’s leap forward in a very well organized event at Serena Hotel, the party totally disarmed its critics “who always belittled us that we had no Agenda”.
“Soon we will be working on the Manifesto and it will detail how we intend to implement service delivery when we are in power.”
She said that some ill guided individuals want to destroy the party but was prepared to defend it.
“To some Museveni is not the issue anymore, their obsession is how to kill FDC this we will not allow. Our commitment is to work passionately to stay alive, to grow, to expand and work with others.”
Although she is leaving as party SG, Alaso promised to do her part to ensure FDC is a viable and strong political party.
According to the circulating political gossip, those lined up for her seat include; Terego County MP, Kassiano Wadri, Budadiri West MP, Nathan Nandala Mafabi, or possibly Geoffrey Ekanya who worked under Reform Agenda.
