The Electoral Commission (EC) has finally cleared Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu’s new political party, the Alliance for National Transformation.
In a statement issued by the top official promoter of the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) and the former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Deputy President for Eastern Region, Alice Alaso, the party’s clearance followed several interactions with Electoral Commission and has come at the right time.
“I am happy to communicate that today, the 19th of March, 2019, pursuant to our efforts over the past several months, EC has cleared the establishment of our Political Party, the Alliance for National Transformation,” Alaso said.
Alaso said that the next phase is now the gazetting of the party which is expected to be done in the next few weeks.
“With this clearance, we are now in position to make arrangements for the official launch. The date, venue and time for the official launch will be communicated soon,” Alaso said.
Alaso has thus appreciated all people that have supported and contributed to the process that has brought led to registered milestone.
In a post on Facebook, Muntu wrote: “Fellow Ugandans, today, the Electoral Commission has finally cleared our party, the Alliance for National Transformation”.
“We would like to thank everyone that has stood with and for us thus far and look forward to building a Uganda that works for all of us, together,” he added.
Muntu’s move to form the new party followed his fallout with the FDC leadership that time and again labled him a party mole.
Muntu as well noted that the other reason that forced him and other former FDC members was the fact that the party couldn’t reconcile the two strategies for effective change that is Organisation which he championed and defiance that is championed by the FDC leadership
