KAMPALA — Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) has urged members to reconcile after competitive party primaries ahead of 2021 general poll.
Speaking to reporters in Kampala, Mr. Faizo Muzeyi, the Head of Media and Communications said: “To those UPC members who for one reason or the other were unable to go through primaries and nomination processes, our message is that do not despise those who went through and those who were unable are all members of UPC! Those who went through seek out for your brother or sister that did not go through and make solid team. To you who did not go through, the success of your brother or sister is your success as well. Rally behind your comrade and campaign for the success of the Party you love”.
He promised that UPC leadership will provide whatever support available to its flag bearers to help them with campaigns.
Muzeyi told reporters that in the concluded nominations, the party has recorded interest from all the Fourteen (14) traditional regions of the country and has since nominated candidates at all levels and in line with the Party President’s stand point of “strengthening our firm foundation through grassroots mobilization”.
“The UPC has nominated a big number of candidates at both Parliamentary and local government level which include: District Chairpersons, City Mayors, Municipal/Division Mayors, LC 3 Chairpersons and Councilors comprising of all levels who are to represent the Party in 2021 general elections across the country,” he said, adding that:
“This effort is a result of continuous engagement with our members throughout the country”.
He asked electorates to scrutinise the UPC manifesto 2021-2026 and give party members a chance saying the party has identified quality and people of good standing at Parliamentary and local council levels, to execute this program for the betterment of the common citizen.
