KAMPALA- The Democratic Party (DP) has on Tuesday July 23 shared a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) framework with other democratically-inclined political units for discussion.
While addressing the media at the DP headquarters, the party president Norbert Mao revealed that DP has for several months been working tirelessly to develop a comprehensive framework for a united front to present a viable alternative to the failing State presided over by the NRM.
“It is our expectation that we will agree on a Special Purpose Vehicle to lead the charge for democratic change in our country. Fortunately the DP Bloc has a liberation plan that can form the basis of a coalition for change,” he said.
He said they believe SVP can coalesce into a common front that transcends their narrow confines and unleash the power of the people.
“Under a common banner the contradictions within our ranks will be resolved in order to free us to resolve the primary contradiction between the Museveni regime and the Ugandan masses,” Mao revealed.
He added that, “Our unity will grow as we struggle for a common cause. Unity will be forged in the crucible of struggle. Our unity will also tap into the unprecedented surge in the political participation of young people.”
Mao said that they shall organize themselves nonviolently inspite of the repressive and menacing state machinery.
“We shall stare fearlessly into the barrels of guns as we assert our humanity and citizenship. The writing is on the wall. We are seeing the beginning of the end of the Museveni regime,” he promised.
He further noted that they will present a detailed discussion paper on the things to take into account as they craft a formidable alternative to a dying regime.
“Intense closed door consultations and discussions will follow to build harmony. It is our expectation that the SPV or a coalition of the willing shall be formally launched before October 2019 and at its helm will be N leadership to a country in crisis,” he remarked.
