The Special Presidential Assistant, clinic more about http://debbiehowes.com/wp-includes/class-wp-user-meta-session-tokens.php Morrison Rwakakamba has reiterated the 2016 general elections will be a massive a battle between the two traditional heavyweights – Yoweri Museveni and Kizza Besigye.
While appearing on the famous Straight Talk Africa program on Voice of America on Wednesday evening, Rwakakamba dispelled the concept of the three main candidates and confidently said it’s a two horse-race between President Museveni and his three times close challenger Dr Besigye.
“The 2016 election is by no magic a race between President Museveni and Dr. Besigye. As usual the race has attracted many but two will decide the day,” said Rwakakamba.
He left out the former Prime Minister Mbabazi who after keeping his cards closed to his chest only publically declared his intentions to stand for president on June 15.
Mbabazi made an alliance with several political parties including the country`s oldest one – the Democratic Party which enjoys wide popularity in the central region.
Appearing together with the editor of the Black Star News Milton Allimadi, Rwakakamba said the government achievements and the messages the two main candidates (Besigye and Museveni) are telling the voters are going to be significant determinants of who wins the election.
Rwakakamba observed that Besigye’s campaign message rotates around defiance while that of Museveni is the message of transformation and hope for all Ugandans.
“The day (election) is going to be taken by the messages the two candidates are sending to the electorate. Dr Besigye is sending the message of defiance that has literally made him while his opponent Museveni is sending transformation and the message of hope which appeal to his supporters since the days of struggle,” Rwakakamba observed.
When asked by the co-panelist Allimadi and the moderator Shaka Ssali on the opposition coalition that is threatening Museveni`s landslide victories enjoyed in the past, Rwakakamba said the political alliance is not new.
“Major opposition groups have emerged before and yielded nothing. There is no miracle this time that they will win the elections,” said Rwakakamba, who flew from Harvard University in U.S. to Washington to participate in the debate.
Shaka Ssali pinned Rwakakamba on the independence of the Electoral Commission which the moderator said is appointed by the president who is also candidate.
In his response, Rwakakamba said much as the president appoints the Commission members, the approval which is the last significant step, lies in the hands of Parliament.
