The Democratic Party (DP)-Gulu District Executive Committee (DEC-Gulu) has endorsed the cooperation agreement signed between the DP and the ruling National Resistance Movement-(NRM) government.
On July 20th 2022, DP President General Norbert Mao signed the pact giving leeway to President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the NRM chairperson, to appoint him the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs.
In a press released on Monday and signed by the DP district executive committee chairperson Kerobino Uma Francis and the district secretary Akelllo Clare Rose, says the district executive committee has unanimously endorsed the document of cooperation agreement signed between the two political parties in Uganda.
According to the press released, the pack if implemented will ago along way to solve many outstanding constitutional and political issues Uganda is still facing.
During the signing of the pact, President Museveni praised leaders of Democratic Party for the “gesture of mature, foresighted, and constructive politics”.
Last week, Mao also said the agreement he signed with the NRM is in line with DP’s strategic objectives, which NEC endorsed on October 25th, 2021. The three objectives included; capturing power, attaining majority parliamentary seats in the main opposition party, or sharing power with the reigning government.
Mao has been leader of the opposition party since 2010. Ahead of the 2021 general election, he lost several party leaders to the newly formed National Unity Platform.
