The Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) National coordinator and former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party president, Gen Mugisha Muntu has broken the silence saying People Power and his party are in the final stage of a coalition talk and soon they will agree on a position.
Muntu announced that his party and People Power are in talks for a working structure that will enhance their coalition ahead of the 2021 elections and According to Muntu, they need to have an infrastructure and stability so that when the coalition happens, the strength will come from the stability of their partners adding that his party will field a presidential candidate in the 2021 elections.
“Our focus is to build capabilities to field candidates 100 percent at every level, at sub-county, district level, constituency, and the national flag bearer. But we are also aware there is a need for a coalition, so we will also be working towards a coalition,” he said.
In his statements, Muntu advised his former party FDC to concentrate on building the party within if they expect to unseat the regime.
“Much as they look at methods of overthrowing the regime, they must concentrate on what thy build from within the party. A party can only give what it has. FDC must market themselves around that,’ he said.
Muntu is currently traversing the Acholi sub-region where he is meeting grassroots leaders for the ANT.
“I can’t say that we have reached an agreement yet because Gen Muntu has always insisted that each of the groups continues with its own mobilization strategy, that the agreement will come at a later stage,” a source said.
In an interview recently. Joel Ssenyonyi the People Power Spokesperson revealed that the engagements are still ongoing and confirmed that very soon they will let the Country know of what they have agreed on.
