The main opposition party, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has picked Baker Matsiko as a flag-bearer in the forthcoming parliamentary by-election for Bukanga County in Isingiro district.


Speaking to the New Vision on Tuesday, the party’s electoral commission head, Dan Mugarura, said the party is well prepared to win the polls despite the Electoral Commission (EC) giving them only 10 days to campaign.

“We’ve already got the flag-bearer (Baker) and I think we’ll win this election. We want, however, to express our dissatisfaction with the way the EC is handling the electoral process in this country because it is following the whims of the ruling NRM party,” Mugarura asserted.

He added: “EC changed the nomination dates but not the Election Day; we expected them to push everything to allow us traverse the constituency because we’ve not been campaigning like NRM has been doing even before the nominations.
This now means that we have only 10 days for the campaigns.”

The seat fell vacant following the death of Gregory Matovu.
