However, the electoral commission spokesperson Paul Bukenya responding to Amuriat’s threats told URN that once candidates get nominated, they will be bound by electoral laws and once they violate them, the enforcers of those laws have to handle them accordingly.
According to the party electoral commission chairman Toterebuka Bamwenda, they can't reveal the number of signatures they have submitted, but what they can assure Ugandans is that they have met the required minimum of 100 signatures and voter details from 3/4 of the country's districts.
Speaking at the weekly FDC press briefing at the party headquarters, Amuriat said Biriggwa is the best suited to manage his campaigns because of his vast experience and passion he exhibited during their joint campaigns in the primaries for the FDC presidential candidate.
The party opened a two day’s exercise calling for those who meet the qualifications to carry the FDC flag in the forthcoming general elections to do so. On the first day of the exercise, the party's National Chairman Wasswa Biriggwa was the only candidate who picked the forms.
