“Our Internal survey shows that we have a start-up undisputable vote of over 4million votes indicative of our Party structures, being that there are 67000 NRM branches with each having a committee of 30 members, this adds to 2,010,000,’ Ssebalu said.

Ssebalu added, “7500 Parishes each with 30 members gives us 225000 votes, 1500 sub counties with 30 members each adds up to 45000 votes, 112 districts with 40 members each adds up to 4480 votes, from the flag bearer pool, we have 635,624 flag bearers nationwide. That is all to mention but a few.”

“Our party membership of 10.4 million is another figure that assures the NRM of victory come 18th February 2016.”

With all that, Ssebalu noted that the party is left with one task of ensuring that all its members go out to vote without any intimidation or resistance.

“We call upon our people to turn up early enough to the polling centers and cast their vote confidently. Do not accept any intimidation whatsoever; value your vote by keeping it safe until the tally is done.”
