Uganda People’s Congress-UPC has embarked on strengthening its party structures, Joseph Bossa, the vice president has revealed.

According to Bossa, a delegation of UPC officials has been traversing the eastern and northern regions since the end of last year to mobilize party supporters and update them about ongoing activities. He says the party members asked the officials to cooperate with other political parties to change the leadership of the country.

Bossa says that as a result, they have resolved to work with other opposition political parties and independent minded members of the ruling National Resistance Movement, who are interested in democracy.

The parties include Justice Forum led by Asuman Basalirwa, Democratic Party under Norbert Mao, and Forum for Democratic Change led by Gen Mugisha Muntu and John Ken Lukyamuzi’s Conservative Party.

He explains that the parties have agreed to work with civil society organizations to focus on revamping the electoral system. Bossa says this will not only consider the composition of the Electoral commission which they are opposed to but also include; the deployment of security forces, funding of candidates and transportation of voting materials up to the tallying centers.
