The Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) a youth wing of the Democratic Party has indicated its intentions to join the opposition alliance of Inter-party cooperation (IPC) in preparation for the coming 2011 Uganda General elections.
The Uganda currents political parties under the IPC alliance are JEEMA, FDC, UPC and Conservative party.
The head of UYD Susan Abbo told journalists in Kampala today (Friday, 25th June 2010) that the decision was unanimously supported by the UYD leadership.
Abbo who is also the former Makerere University Guild president says that the alliance provides the best opportunity for Uganda opposition to win the Uganda coming 2011 general elections.
UYD decision comes after another faction of Uganda’s oldest political party DP headed by Dr. Lulume Bayiga also resolved to join the IPC alliance.
The Democtic Party headed by the Northern Uganda Gulu district LCV chairperson Nobert Mao, refused to join the IPC alliance arguing that it risks weakening the Uganda political opposition.
This comes as good news to Uganda opposition as it prepares the ground to defeat the ruling National Resistance Movement Party (NRM) headed by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in the coming Uganda 2011 elections.
