OMORO-UGANDA/NEWSDAY: The Opposition is mooting plans to nominate a joint candidate to contest with the National Resistance Movement party candidate in the Omoro county parliamentary by-election.
This comes a day after President Museveni picked 32-year-old Andrew Ojok Oulanyah, the eldest son of the former legislator and Speaker of Parliament Jacob L’Okori Oulanyah to hold the NRM flag in Omoro County.
The President made the decision after meeting five other NRM aspirants at his country home in Rwakitura on Tuesday.
At least four opposition aspirants have expressed interest to vie for the Omoro parliamentary seat. They are Terrence Odonga and Dick Denis Owani, all from the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party, Godwin Okello from the Democratic Party (DP), and Oscar Kizza of Alliance for National Transformation (ANT).
Chagga Oyat, the FDC coordinator in Acholi sub-region however says whereas they have strong candidates, they are looking at the possibility of fronting a joint candidate against NRM.
