Electoral reforms campaign to continue in 2015-opposition

Retired FDC President Kizza Besigye says the opposition will focus on pushing for meaningful electoral reforms next year in which he states that they will use a three-pronged approach to achieve their goals.

Besigye explains that the opposition will put pressure on the executive, engage parliament to ensure that the proposals agreed on during the national conference at Hotel Africana are adopted by the executive and parliament.

Besigye states that should the executive and the NRM party dominated parliament ignore the proposals for electoral reforms as anticipated, they will resort to unconventional means next year, to demand for reforms.

Addressing Journalists at 4 GC offices on Katonga road, Besigye stressed that there won’t be an election in 2016 where he says President Museveni and the NRM party determine the outcome.

Meanwhile Besigye says the campaign for electoral reforms should never be distorted to mean that they are deliberately boycotting elections.

He explains that they only want free and fair elections where all participants have an equal platform.
