The party spokesperson Okoler Opip this Tuesday morning while addressing swipes of journalists reminded Luttamaguzi and kgher defiant party members that the DP too has Nobert Mao as its presidential flag bearer for the 2021 polls.

Okoler insists that all DP members must adhere to the provision of their party constitution which strictly asks them to support only the party candidate in a general election. He says the members would be af liberty to support candidates of their choice in a situation where the party is in a coalition and lacks an official candidate.

“Those who are supporting other candidates are doing it at their own will,” Okoler told journalists. “The DP has its own candidate to follow. We will abide by our constitution because this is what we resolved on our delegates conference,” he adds.
