DP President Norbert Mao

The Democratic Party will tomorrow April 20, hold a National Executive Committee (NEC) to find ways of enforcing discipline and also to review the party register.

According to DP President Norbert Mao, there are so many people purporting to be party members yet they are not registered.

“Deliberations will elaborate on discipline of members, clear description of offenses and also draft the rules since none is provided for in the Constitution,” Mao, who was addressing a press conference, said.

Mao also said that the NEC is expected to generate a constituency- based register, adding that membership cards will be coded and life time membership will be regulated, with branches recommending to NEC all those to become lifetime members in the categories of Gold, Silver and Bronze.

NEC, he said, will also appoint a date for the siting of the National Council despite calls for its convening by some party adherents.

“Those demanding for the National Council meeting are just ignorant of the DP Constitution and how it works,” he said.

Intriguingly, Mao said Uganda is not ‘a normal country’, rife with intrigue that borders on nepotism.
