Forum for Democratic Change will this Wednesday convene to re-examine and take a decision on the Shs10billion that the government through the Electoral Commission (EC) has given to political parties with representation in Parliament.
Chairman Electoral Commission (EC), Eng. Dr. Badru M. Kiggundu last week evealed that government has released a tune of Shs10bn to facilitate all political parties a head of the 2016 general elections.
Only parties with representation in parliament would get the money, Kiggundu stressed. But the money has since been put to scrutiny by the benefiting parties and the general public.
FDC Spokesperson John Kikonyogo told a weekly press briefing today that the party’s National Executive Committee meets to decide on whether to participate in next year’s general elections or not and the money.
He said that FDC would pull out of the races in the 2016 elections unless a new and unbiased electoral commission is in place.
Kikonyongo also lashed out on the EC for carrying out voter registration at Parish level other than villages.
He said EC should explain this to the public because there are a number of people who will miss out on the exercise because they can not reach the designated centres.
