In a press conference on Monday, the acting president of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Erias Lukwago, announced that the FDC delegates conference, held last week, passed several resolutions, including the suspension of former party president Patrick Amuriat.
This decision came in response to disciplinary actions taken by Amuriat, and the party is now working on implementing the suspension.
Lukwago stressed that members who violate the party’s constitution recklessly will not go unpunished.
Leaving Amuriat without sanctions would go against the values upheld by the founders of the FDC, according to Lukwago.
He emphasized that the interim leadership has a mandate to revive the party and has been working diligently to fulfill this responsibility.
The FDC aims to bring the party back on track after what Lukwago described as a period where the party’s standards had significantly deteriorated.
As part of their efforts to reinvigorate the party, Lukwago announced a National Executive Committee (NEC) delegates conference scheduled for Thursday, September 28, at Katonga Road.
During this conference, the electoral commission, chaired by former Nakawa MP Michael Kabaziguruka, will release a roadmap for new party elections, including the election of new party structure leaders.
