UPC Party President Pulls Out of Presidential Race to Stand as Lira East MP

Published

on


It has been confirmed that the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) will not be participating in the presidential race this time round come 2021.

According to the UPC this decision has been informed by a sudden change of mind on the side of their party president Jimmy Akena.

While holding a presser on Wednesday at the party headquarters Sharon Oyat Arach, the party spokesperson confirmed that the seemingly dissolving party will not front any candidate to compete against President Yoweri Museveni for the top seat in 2021 polls.

Arach went on to explain that the reason for this shocking decision is that their only potential candidate, also the party president has since resolved to instead compete for the Lira East parliamentary seat.

Arach further stated that it is next to impossible to find a replacement for the same post on the party ticket since they already held a delegates conference that chose Akena.

“It is a long process; names of the interested candidates have to go through the National Council which are later forwarded to the National delegates who choose a suitable candidate but as we said, right now our major aim is taking grass-roots positions,” she said.

She, however, consoled UPC party sympathizers and members when she said they would still actively engage in the general elections but concentrate their energies on other positions.

“The party is focusing on gaining full positions at the grass-root level like Councilors, Mayors and Members of Parliament, so we shall not have the presidential candidate,” she said.

Arach also trashed allegations that UPC was using this as a strategy form an alliance with the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).
