The Alliance for National Transformation –ANT is to assess its performance
in the February 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
Muntu also contested for the presidency but garnered 67,574 votes.
For a party that boasts of developing grass-root structures, they
have now moved to assess what exactly went wrong in the elections, and lay strategies
for the next elections.
Alice Alaso, the ANT National Coordinator, says that they will focus
on recruiting more party members to make the party strong but also strive to keep
the existing members.
She says that the assessment will take a month and it will involve
sensitizing Ugandans about what ANT stands for before they move on to build
According to Alaso, the message of national transformation was misunderstood
during the campaigns.
//Cue in We want to…
Cue out:…that we need”//
Alaso says that the party is going to seek opinions from Ugandans about
how to make ANT a strong party ahead of the next general elections.
//Cue in: “Elections were fraudulent…
Cue out:…our party structures”//
The team has so far met flag bearers in Busoga, Mbale, and will
head to Teso, Lango, Acholi and West Nile and then Western Uganda among other
