Secretary General Gerald Siranda says it is the cardinal role of every DP Member to keep recruiting members and building the party. Moreover, according to Siranda, Kyotera is an appropriate branch to lead the revival, seeing as the district did win 2 parliamentary seats and several LCV councilor seats.
Their resolve follows the defection of 11 members of the party to the platform, a new political outfit led by Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu. Some of the MPs who crossed to NUP include Mathias Mpuuga, Medard Lubega Ssegona, Joseph Ssewungu Gonzaga, Betty Nambooze, Muwanga Kivumbi, Allan Ssewanyana, Ssempala Kigozi, Robinah Ssentongo, Veronica Namaganda and Florence Namayanja.
Among the proposals according Muyizi include adopting the DP Parliamentary Chief Whip as a direct member to the party’s National Executive Committee NEC, introduction of specific Women and Youth Delegates Conferences, and introduction of councils for Special Interest groups.
