Opposition leader Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, has asked the newly elected National Unity Platform lawmakers to sacrifice for the people who have given them the five-year mandate.
Bobi Wine made the call during a closed-door meeting with more than 50 MPs-elect who attended what they referred to as an inaugural caucus meeting at his Magere home in Wakiso District.
Yesterday’s meeting, according to sources, agreed to convene another high-level meeting to discuss the appointment of the next Leader of Opposition in Parliament, committee chairpersons, and Shadow Cabinet members.
The meeting was chaired by Bobi Wine and attended by party Secretary-General David Rubongoya and NUP deputy president in charge of the central region Mathias Mpuuga.
The Forum for Democratic Change party has had most seats in Parliament since the return of the multiparty system in 2006. But in the just concluded polls, FDC got only 28 MPs against NUP’s 61.
The MPs-elect introduced themselves and one-by-one pledged to remain loyal to people power movement and party leaders.
“The other issue of discussion also was the strategy for the next move after the election. This will be further discussed because he didn’t divulge into details about the same,” the source added.
