Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) electoral commission boss Dan Mugarura has revealed Baker Matsiko as their flag-bearer in the forthcoming parliamentary by-election for Bukanga County in Isingiro district.
The Bukanga Constituency seat fell vacant following the death of Gregory Matovu last month.
Mugarura also confirmed the party is well prepared to win the polls despite the Electoral Commission (EC) giving them only 10 days to campaign.
There were wrangles in the NRM, over the election of former MP Nathan Byanyima in the October 25 party primary. Party functionaries have been struggling to get Stephen Kangwagye back into the contest, after he lost to Byanyima.
The EC set 26th November as the date for the Bukanga by-elections. Eng. Badru Kiggundu, the Electoral Commission chairperson says on the same date they will also fill the vacant positions of councilors in the district.
Sam Rwakoojo the EC secretary revealed that the elections will cost them 381 million shillings.
