During the engagement, the EU head, H.E Attilio Pacific expressed concerns in regards to the pockets of violence that featured in the just concluded NRM party primaries that left at least 7 people dead. He urged the NRM not to replicate this violence to the general elections as this would avert chaos and further bloodshed from supporters of all political denominations.

The NRM secretariat pledged to voluntarily engage all key players in the next general elections and see how they would have a transparent general election.

In their previous engagements with other opposition parties like ANT, DP, FDC and NUP, the EU ambassadors called for a peaceful general election. The envoys urged the opposition not to instill hate within their supporters but instead preach their manifestos.

The EU envoys normally meet all political parties months before they go to the general elections. Previously, they were criticised by local political analysts for conceding that the general elections were not free and fair but in a twist of events went ahead to attend Museveni’s swearing in ceremony at Kololo.
