“Nominations for NEC positions will be on Wednesday at party headquarters and I encourage all young leaders to go and pick nomination forms,” Byamugyisha who is challenging FDC President, Mugisha Muntu, for the flag bearer position, announced.
Nabillah stirs chaos, mars grassroots polls
FDC Electoral Commission was forced to suspend the grassroots polls in Nakawa Division in Kampala over chaos involving some party members.
The FDC party Grassroots polls in Kampala started on Sunday and were expected to end on Monday ahead of the National Delegates conference.
Dan Mugarura, the FDC party Electoral Commission Chairperson told URN that they were prompted to call off the polls after some party members led byMP Nabilah tried to vote by force.
Nabilah denies having mobilised the youths to disrupt the polls.
She however, says some of the youths who missed voting at the cell and ward levels wanted to vote at the division level.
According to Nabilah, she only provided transport when the youths approached her for help.
She says it would be useless for her to mobilise people to disrupt elections in her constituency where her voters are because she is already a Member of Parliament.
According to the party Electoral Commission the grassroots elections in Kampala are expected to be complete by Wednesday in all the city division.
