Opposition Democratic Party (DP) National Executive Committee (NEC) will maintain Fred Denis Mukasa Mbidde as the party’s candidate for the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA).
The current term of EALA representatives is coming to an end in the first half of 2017 and if endorsed by parliament, unhealthy http://centerforblackbelt.org/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/nextgen_basic_gallery/module.nextgen_basic_gallery.php Mbidde who also doubles as the DP National Vice President will be serving for his second and last term.
The party Deputy Publicity Secretary, http://crosswordfiend.com/blog/wp-includes/class-json.php Alex Waiswa Mufumbira told the media on Tuesday during the party’s weekly press briefing that the National Executive Committee of the party resolved to declare Mbidde as their sole candidate.
“We are coming to the first half of 2017, http://coronaextra.com.au/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/i18n/adapter.i18n_album_translation.php we must have the flag bearer for EALA elections and we don’t want to wait for the final time; NEC members unanimously last weekend chose its candidate to tussle out with the others,” Waiswa said.
Waiswa noted that their choice of candidate is a winner in the outlook, “He has been with the party for some time and we have decided to maintain our own.”
“This is not new, when we were going into the general elections; NEC decided that all incumbent members of Parliament who wish to retain their seats shall not be substituted,” Waiswa noted.
DP, he said, believes that it is not good to substitute a player who is scoring. “If you look at the score card of EALA, Mbidde has been beyond average; he is a student of merit and honors whatever we sent him to do.”
“We call upon all members of Parliament to accord him support to raise high the party and the national flag.”
