Najjanankumbi, Uganda - The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) electoral commission, under the leadership of Chairman Toterebuka Bamwenda, has officially nominated key contenders for the party's top positions. The nominations took place on Thursday afternoon at the FDC party offices in Najjanankumbi, drawing a crowd of enthusiastic FDC supporters.

The incumbent FDC President, Mr. Patrick Amuriat, and the Secretary-General, Mr. Nandala Mafabi, were both nominated to contest for their respective positions. Amuriat, who has held the presidency, made his intentions clear by stating, "I am still here, not going anywhere," after his nomination.

However, the FDC's electoral commission also put forth Moses Byamugisha as a candidate for the party president's role. This development signals a competitive internal election for the party's leadership.

These nominations underscore the FDC's commitment to a democratic process within the party.

The incumbent party president, Mr. Patrick Amuriat, has been at the forefront of FDC leadership and voiced his determination to continue his tenure.

Speaking after his nomination, Mr. Nandala Mafabi emphasized the party's commitment to democracy, stating, "In FDC, we believe in democracy; we do not believe in passing through windows."
