The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has kicked off the process for the nomination of the party's presidential flag bearer.

The party's deputy spokesperson, John Kikonyogo said the party is prepared for all those interested.

While addressing journalists at the party's weekly press briefing at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi, in Kampala. Monday, Kikonyogo noted that the party is still uncertain on whether the former party leader Col. Dr Kizza Besigye will be among the candidates.

All party members interested in becoming presidential flag bearers are expected to pick expression and nomination forms on August 18th and 19th and return them on August 25th and 26th.

At the party headquarters yesterday, Besigye posters had been placed all over the place describing him as president.

However, Kikonyogo said the posters mean nothing until the nominations are done.

In an interview with the party spokesperson last week, Ibrahim Semujju stressed that many party members still want Besigye to be the party's flag bearer but that is his decision to make. 

Kikonyogo also condemned the continued interference of police in the party primaries and other internal activities.

He noted that on several occasions police have been interfering and foiling their party primaries in different parts of the country.

"How do you expect us to get candidates without allowing us to hold our primaries? How do we hold primaries without meeting as party members? This is challenging and it cannot be applicable," he said.
