Nsubuga noted that the meeting with Akena was to seek his views on his commitment to IPOD and the Summit meeting of presidents of political parties.

“We have been sitting as council of secretaries for a long time but a time has come for presidents to meet in a summit which we shall push for after visiting all Parties presidents,” Nsubuga said.

“The meets are also aimed at doing evaluation of the post elections period; we want to see how we can evaluate ourselves so that by 2021, whatever mistakes that were made are rectified for better environment and credible elections in 2021,” Nsubuga noted.

“We also sought his ideas about the political party funding from government; we have realized that the current system where money is distributed according to each party’s numeric strength favors a few political parties.”

Nsubuga suggested that IPOD should come up with a new system whereby 30 percent of the whole fund is shared equally across all parties in Parliament while the 70 percent is shared on numerical strength.

The ideas were welcomed by Akena who expressed willingness to meet other parties presidents in a dialogue for the good of the country.

“We are committed to the avenues of dialogue and strengthening IPOD and for the better future of Uganda; I am committed to that and ready to attend the summit at any time when it is ready,” Akena said.
