KAMPALA – FDC presidential candidate Patrick Amuriat will launch his manifesto and campaign plans after his nomination next week.
Addressing journalists at the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi near Kampala on Monday, Mr Amuriat said a party committee will sit on Wednesday to complete their manifesto
He said that the manifesto and his campaign plans will be launched in Soroti after his nomination.
Mr Amuriat said their manifesto is based on three pillars; the transition of power, addresses post Covid-19 pandemic and the medium and long term development programmes for the nation.
Presidential nominations are slated to take place next Monday and Tuesday at Kyambogo University sports grounds.
He, however, said they are waiting for the EC to clear his signatures before they set the date for nomination.
As of yesterday, EC had cleared only four presidential candidates for nomination of the 22 who had submitted the required signatures.
Amuriat also vowed to hold a procession to his nomination contrary to the guidelines issued by the Electoral commission (EC).
“EC has issued a number of restrictions during the forthcoming elections. They have instructed us to take only 10 people to Kyambogo for our nominations. I want to inform EC that we shall not conduct our campaigns their way. We shall go with all our people to Kyambogo and all those planning to block us should be prepared because we are known for defiance,”Mr Amuriat said.
