Candidates aspiring to fill the vacant position of the woman member of Parliament in Dokolo District are not bothered by their physical strength and party constitution.

Several women including those from opposition political parties like Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) to which Imat Cecilia Ogwal belonged and others from National Unity Platform (NUP) have expressed interest in occupying her seat.

Although NRM as a party already have a flag bearer in Dokolo, the majority of the candidates who have expressed interest are independent- leaning NRM. For example, Anna Grace Lalam is a prominent NRM carder who has opted to contest as an independent against the party’s constitution gives the flagbearer the responsibility of representing the party in case of any by-election.

She argued that her party's flag bearer is too weak and unfit to hold the flag in this By- election.

Similarly, Beatrice Molly Abang is the district NRM chairperson who has opted to run as an independent against the party’s constitution. Abang believes that with her experience in district council, she is better placed to represent the party.

On the other hand, Rosemary Alwoc Ogwal, daughter to the Late Cecilia Atim Ogwal is unbothered by questions regarding her residential belonging and physical strength considering the fact that she is walking on crutches. She says people peddling such sentiments are not patriotic.

Alwoc who is not yet sure whether she will contest as an independent candidate or under the FDC ticket is in the race to continue her mother’s legacy.

Meanwhile in National Unity Platform (NUP) where two people; Harriet Ageno and Christine Acen Otom has expressed interest in contesting, Michael Adonyo, the party’s coordinator in Lango says they are considering backing up the candidate who will be fronted by Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Party.
