FDC has unveiled the roadmap for its forthcoming elections for the National Executive Committee (NEC) leadership including the party president.
Addressing journalists at their office in Najjanankumbi, the FDC deputy spokesperson, John Kigonyogo said that aspiring leaders will be allowed to pick forms for their respective positions between 8th and 12th September 2023.
He said the forms are expected to be returned from September 13th to 16th for all positions that do not sit in the party’s cabinet, while those vying for positions in the cabinet (party president and deputies, chairpersons, secretary general, treasurer, and their deputies) will return theirs between September 17th and18th.
Meanwhile secretary General Nandala Mafabi has rejected the request for funding the Extraordinary National Delegates Conference, which was called by the party chairman, Mr. Wasswa Birigwa on grounds that the party’s governing bodies were not informed in advance
Mr. Mafabi stated in his letter said that “Bigirwa announced the extraordinary meeting in the Daily Monitor without notifying any party organ, including the Secretary-General, who is the principal accounting officer of the party, the party president, and the party treasurer, who is responsible for party finances.”
Mafabi also pointed out that Birigwa appears to be implementing the resolutions made by the Katonga faction under Besigye.
