Maj Gen (Rtd) Mugisha Muntu, the national coordinator for the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT), has said that his party is building its grassroots infrastructure and not yet ready to field a presidential candidate in 2021.
Maj Gen (Rtd) Muntu said at the moment, the party is looking at forming a coalition with other opposition parties ahead of 2021 elections. He said that they will work with opposition forces to field joint candidates at all levels, including at presidency.
“At the moment we are not focusing on an individual. We have chosen building ANT as an institution from the grassroots up to the national level, attracting more leaders and mobilising resources. If we don’t do that, we can field a candidate who will be left hanging up there without the necessary grassroots infrastructure,”
Although he did not mention the specific parties they will work with, Gen Muntu has held numerous meetings with People Power Movement led by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine. The announcement is a pointer that the two reached an agreement and that Muntu will back Bobi wine.
