The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Najjanankumbi faction, headed by party president Eng. Patrick Amuriat, has unveiled the electoral roadmap for the National Executive Committee (NEC), which will see changes in the top party leadership.

The announcement was made by John Kikonyogo, the FDC deputy spokesperson, in a press conference held at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi on Monday, September 4, 2023, in Kampala.

While addressing the press, Kikonyogo said that aspiring leaders will be able to access forms for their respective positions between the 8th and 12th of September 2023 and will be returned from September 13th to 16th for all positions that are not on the cabinet.

“Those vying for positions in the cabinet (including party president, deputies, chairpersons, secretary general, treasurer, and their deputies) will return between September 17th and 18th,” said Kikonyogo

In a document released by the party electoral commission chairperson, Boniface Bamwenda Toterebuka, the party is set to elect NEC members on October 6th at the UMA Show Grounds in Kampala. A two-day delegates conference is scheduled for October 6, 2023, at the UMA grounds in Kampala.

Kikonyogo’s electoral roadmap declaration has exacerbated party fights since the Katonga faction announced the extraordinary delegates’ conference scheduled for November 19, 2023, in opposition to that of the party electoral commission chairperson.

Members of the Katonga faction headed by Dr. Kizza Besigye have since distanced themselves from electoral activities organised by the Najjanankumbi faction, describing them as Nandala’s selections, which have left the party supporters divided and perplexed ahead of the 2026 national elections.

Speaking to Muwanga Sulaiman, the chairperson of FDC Nansana Municipality, he said they know nothing about the party electoral roadmap, stating that even the just concluded party structure elections did not happen in his area.

Political analysts have since revealed that FDC is headed to vanish in case the two power centres fail to reconcile.
