The opposition Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party has set July 1st and 2nd as the dates for nomination of its presidential flag bearer.
The Party Electoral Commission chairperson Dan Mugarura says that after the nominations the candidate will start campaigns ahead of the delegates conference scheduled for September 2nd.
According to Mugarura, on the same date, the party will also fill up other 19 vacancies in its leadership structure. He says those whoever seeks to be elected FDC presidential candidate must be 35 years of age and above and hold at least UACE certificate or its equivalent.
Mugarura says the aspirant shouldn’t be bankrupt and must not be an ex-convict since they want to present a candidate who will complete with flag bearers from other parties under the Democratic Alliance.
Recently, major opposition parties signed a protocol to front a joint presidential candidate and at all other levels across the country. So far two aspirants have declared intentions to contest for the FDC party presidential ticket.
They are General Mugisha Muntu, the incumbent FDC party president and Moses Byamugyisha, a member of the party.
