Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) National Mobilizer, buy http://dejanmilutinovic.com/wp-includes/class-wp-comment.php Ingrid Turinawe Kamateneti has hinted on challenging her demeaning treatment on the floor of Parliament yesterday while she campaigned for East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) elections.

Ingrid who polled 25 out of 398 told the media on Tuesday after elections that she won’t let the nasty treatment she was accorded go unchallenged.

The FDC second flag bearer was booed by legislators accusing her of calling them Mpigs.

Commenting on the results, approved http://center4research.org/wp-includes/class-wp-error.php Ingrid noted, page “First of all I have to congratulate myself, I want to thank my voters and my supporters because according to some people, they thought I would get zero, which I didn’t get.”

Ingrid had earlier alluded that her main reason for contesting and sticking in the race was to expose the rot in Parliament.

 “It is very unfortunate because there is no democracy, the Treaty is very clear that each party must be represented; FDC is a big party after the numerical strength of NRM, we are the next but we are going without representation and I think we are going to challenge this,” Ingrid said.

She added, “The way I was handled on the floor of Parliament, I am going to challenge this, they cannot get away with it.”

“The treaty must also be challenged, if a political party is to send representatives to EALA, then you should not subject them to another vote by another political party.”

Ingrid warned Ugandans to “tighten their belts” expecting no better future from the new leaders representing them in the regional house.

“This has even energized me to fight more; more challenges are coming, there are bills to change, the age limit is coming; we must make sure that we struggle to liberate ourselves.”
