Former Forum for Democratic Change presidential candidate,Dr. Kizza Besigye has urged Ugandans to participate in the forthcoming LC1 elections despite party’s condemnation of the ‘queuing behind candidate’ voting process.

According to Besigye, every election the government organizes is a blessing since it enables FDC to carry out operations at ground level.

“Every election they bring is a blessing to us. So engage yourselves in the elections and make sure that you stand behind FDC candidates and we ashame them,” Besigye said.

Recently the party asked parliament to enact a law to push the electoral commission to change the mode of election for Local Council I chairpersons.
