According to Amuriat, the survival of the new front can only succeed with the goodwill and endorsement of NUP which now leads the opposition in the eleventh parliament. He says now is the time for NUP to bury the hatchet and work with FDC and other opposition parties seeking liberation.
Addressing the press moments after launching the front, POA rallied NUP to consider joining the cause.
“I want to call on other forces of change and particularly the NUP. If they would like to cause a difference in our politics this is the time to come together. I heard some one say that for the struggle to remove Museveni to move forward and succeed, you must first come to us as NUP to get our endorsement,” he stated. “That’s not right; now is the time we must all come together to lead our people out of this,” he added.
