The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) is set to convene the National Council to decide on who will carry the party flag in the 2021 general elections.
According to party spokesperson who double as Kira Municipality MP Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, the national council will take place on October 6th 2020 at party headquarters.
The FDC National Council comprises District Chairmen and Members of the National Executive Committee. The District Chairmen coming to the Council will first convene delegates from their respective districts to obtain a mandate to elect a presidential candidate on their behalf.
The Council will, on behalf of the National Delegates Conference, choose between the Party President Eng. Patrick Amuriat and the Party Chairman Ambassador Waswa Birigwa.
“The two aspiring candidates are currently in Western Uganda where they have held joint campaigns since last week. They are being accompanied by the party Secretary General Nathan Nandala Mafabi, Electoral Commission Chairman Toterebuka Bamwenda and FDC Vice Chairman for Western Uganda Roland Mugume Kaginda,” Semujju said.
The candidates met delegates from Ankore in Mbarara and Bushenyi on Saturday. They also campaigned in Rukungiri, Kanungu and met the rest of Kigezi delegates in Kabale last evening.
He said the candidates will today address their last meeting in Kasese where they are meeting delegates from the Rwenzori sub-region.
“The Secretary General and especially the FDC Vice Chairman for Western Uganda are also simultaneously reconciling FDC leaders who were divided by the party primaries,” he said
The candidates are expected in Kampala tomorrow morning and after refreshing they will head north and east for their last engagements with the delegates.
