“The law must be amended to provide for provisional permits for the first five years and then permanent certificates after the first five years,” advised the PDP president.
Bwanika explained that within the first five years, political parties must show proof of participation in general elections, membership and must have offices.
He therefore noted that accountability should not be the main reason of deregistering a political party.
“A political party should be deregistered if it fails to show proof that it wants to take power but not due to lack of accountability returns because they are not business entity,” he advised.
This comes at a time when the Electoral Commission has listed 10 political parties to be deregistered for failure to account for funds.
