A group of youths from the Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] have petitioned the party NEC regarding the operations and constitutionality of the opposition alliance TDA.

The group led by youth delegate for Mpigi district Thomas Kayanja said the structures and processes of TDA are at variance with democratic principles and also in conflict with the national constitution and the Political Parties and Organizations Act.

“The Democratic Alliance was formed on the ground of fighting for transparence, page http://cosmoveda.de/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/emails/customer-refunded-order.php accountability and honesty but this has not been realized owing to what happened last week, viagra approved http://demo.des.net.id/sejahteraabadi/wp-includes/rss.php ” Kayanja said on Tuesday at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi.

“The deadline for returning the nomination forms was Thursday and was extended to mid-day of the following day but to our dismay, pharm one of the contenders failed to return the forms on time .The TDA officials waited until they officially received him past 11pm which indicated a bend of the rules to favor some individuals.”

The youths expressed fear that TDA has no experience in handling the ‘thorny issue’ of joint candidates, noting that the alliance rather compounds confusion to the detriment of parties.

According to the youths, TDA seems not to emphasize the struggle for free and fair elections yet it is the basis for the forthcoming 2016 general elections.

“We want to remind the officials of TDA that our party has had well organized free and fair elections where we elected our party flag bearer. We therefore would want to see him subjected to free and fair processes unlike what is happening where some individuals are favored.”

“We want them to tell us how they are going to conduct free and fair processes when preferential treatment has already been accorded to some of the candidates in the race. We warn them that anything done outside the set rules and regulations is illegal and we shall not entertain it,” the Mpigi district FDC youth delegate warned.

On the admission of former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi and his Go forward pro change pressure group, the youth decried what they termed as double standards and favoritism by TDA officials having left out embattled Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago.

“TDA refused to admit Lukwago and his pressure group because he was still an active Democratic Party member .Why then admit Mbabazi who proudly admits being an NRM member with the party card? Aren’t those double standards?”

The youth said that the FDC National Executive Committee should consider pulling out of the TDA for abrogating its own rules very early or else the opposition party should expect more than that in future.
