Opposition Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] has shifted the party National Delegates conference from 17th to 24th November 2017.

A message from the deputy party secretary general, Harold Kaija, on Wednesday said the extension is to allow the party grassroots leaders actively participate in LC1 and LC2 elections.

The party had initially gazetted November 17 as the date for the delegates’ conference to be held at Mandela National Stadium.

“I appeal to Ugandans to vote FDC leaders at LC1 and LC2 elections. Vote FDC leaders for national development,” the message said.

According to a plan by the Uganda Electoral Commission, elections for village chairperson (LCI) will be on November 21 and parish chairperson (LC11) on December 7.

Meanwhile, presidential candidates; Gen Mugisha Muntu, Kawempe South MP Mubarak Munyagwa, former Kumi MP Patrick Amuriat, Dan Matsiko and Moses Byamugisha, continue seeking for votes countrywide.
