This is in preparation for the National Executive Committee (NEC) leadership elections scheduled to happen tomorrow. The NEC elections will involve at least 1,400 party delegates representing over 125 districts where the party had grassroots elections.
The deputy party spokesperson, John Kikonyogo said that as some delegates arrived yesterday, most are expected today. 35 positions, including the party president and deputies, are to be vied for.
Other positions include the national chairman and deputies, secretary general, and treasurer general, among others. The development however comes amidst a court petition seeking to block tomorrow’s conference and related activities.
Wasswa Birigwa, the FDC national chairperson ran to court saying he and other members of the Katonga faction will lose their positions if the conference proceeded.
“An interim order doth issue restraining the respondent (Mr Bamwenda), his agents, servants from holding the position of the office of the chief electoral commissioner of the Forum Democratic Change,” reads in part the court documents filed yesterday.
Meanwhile, plans for the election of new office bearers were separate as recently unveiled by the interim leadership. The roadmap is one of the several things decided upon at the September 19 national delegates’ conference.
Additionally, the interim government appointment also happened during this same meeting. The leadership received a grace period of six months to prepare elections for new party leadership.
It was also during that meeting that Mr Patrick Oboi Amuriat, Mr Nathan Nandala Mafabi and Mr Geoffrey Ekanya lost their positions. They got ousted as party president, secretary general and treasurer, respectively.
