Democratic Party president Norbert Mao has lashed out at political players opposed to tomorrow’s Inter Party Organisation for Dialogue meeting scheduled for December 13 at Speke Resort Munyonyo. Specifically, Mao criticised the Forum for Democratic Change which has said it will not be part of the summit expected to be attended by President Museveni. FDC opted out of the meeting saying it had no clear agenda. Mao said FDC’s gesture is destructive. Among the many things IPOD has consistently advocated for over the last 8 years has been electoral reforms. Mao said that with 2021 fast approaching and with limited platforms for advocacy available, IPOD is an ideal opportunity to voice the concerns of the oppositions on electoral reforms and other biting issues in the country.
IPOD was established in 2010 to allow political parties with representation in Parliament dialogue consistently on the challenges facing the country.
