The opposition Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party has turned down a request by General David Sejusa to work together to oust President Yoweri Museveni.
Early this month General Sejusa wrote to Major General Mugisha Muntu, the FDC president asking to join him and other opposition party leaders to work jointly to defeat Museveni in the 2016 elections.
In his letter, the former coordinator of Intelligence Services argued that if the opposition fielded a single candidate, it would be easy to defeat the incumbent.
John Kikonyogo, the FDC spokesperson says that on receiving the letter, party officials met and turned down the request.
He says the party Secretary General Alice Alaso has since communicated the position of the party to General Sejusa.
Kikonyogo says that much as FDC wants more supporters to work with ahead of the 2016 general elections, it is not the right time to work together with General Sejusa because he is still a serving army officer.
When contacted about the decision by FDC, General Sejusa told URN that he was yet to receive the official communication from the party.
FDC is the second opposition party to turn down a request to work together with the former spy chief.
Last week, while addressing the media, UPC Secretary General Jacinto Ogwal said they turned down a request to work with General Sejusa so as not to compromise the values of the party.
Since he returned from his self-imposed exile last year, General Sejusa has become critical of the ruling regime and called for its removal.
However, unlike FDC and UPC, Democratic Party officials recently announced their readiness to work with the general.
