Gen. Gregg Mugisha Muntu, the ANT Presidential Candidate in the recent elections disclosed that they are ready to win massively in the 2026 general elections much as they poorly performed in the 2021 general elections.
The Alliance of National Transformation (ANT) party is in early
preparations for the 2026 general elections.
The party led by Gen Mugisha Muntu registered a dismal performance in the
parliamentary elections after its flag bearers were defeated. They are
Paul Mwiru, the MP Jinja Municipality East, Gerald Karuhanga the Ntungamo
Municipality MP, and Arua Municipality MP Kassiano Wadri. However the party won the LCV Chairperson seat for the newly
created Terego district.
Muntu also contested for the presidency but garnered 67,574 votes.
Speaking to journalists on Tuesday in Gulu, Gen. Muntu says that they
are planning to win massively in the 2026 general elections much as they poorly
performed in the 2021 general elections.
However, Muntu told URN on Tuesday that the party has currently embarked on
massive grass root mobilization and reorganization of its party structures to
secure massive victory in the next general elections.
Muntu noted that the party will sieve its members and front the
best candidate for the position.
//Cue in: ‘’we are people…
Cue out: …of this country.’’//
Muntu said that he was not surprised by his defeat in the recent
elections noting that the election process was marred with irregularities,
bribery, intimidation, and fear which affected its outcomes.
//Cue in: ‘’as ANT we….
Cue out: …down the road.’’//
He also said that the coronavirus disease pandemic and financial constraints
affected the party from adequately traversing the country to sell its manifestos
to solicit votes.
James Okello Mogi, the ANT party candidate who lost the Kilak South
Parliamentary race said that he is optimistic that the 2026 general elections
will be a walkover for his party because by then they must have rooted deeply
among the voters.
The ANT is currently on a countrywide trip to mobilize people to
join the party.
The team is currently in Acholi Sub Region. Gen. Gregg
