Unlike other by-elections where the opposition has fielded many candidates from different parties, they were this time seen with one voice supporting the DP candidate in Luweero which gave them a glamorous victory against the ruling NRM party.
“In all by-elections since 2011, the tally is 60 percent for the opposition against 40 percent for NRM; we still have a lot of work; these are however, broken down where DP has 33 percent while FDC has got 27 percent,” Mao noted.
He, however, remarked that given the 16 so far organised by-elections since 2011, NRM has won in seven districts or municipalities, DP in three districts and one municipality while FDC in two districts and two municipalities.
Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has so far got victory in Jinja Municipality, Bushenyi Municipality, Kasese District and Kamuli District which saw Salam Musumba come back to Parliament.
The Mao’s Democratic Party (DP) won in Luweero District for the first round, Entebbe Municipality, Bukoto South, Butambala and Luweero district for the second round which has seen Nabukenya being pushed back to Parliament by a big margin.
The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) has seen victory in Busiro North of Prof. Gilbert Bukenya (which might end up vacant before 2016 if the NRM hardliners expel Bukenya), Usuk District, Bukanga district, Buhweju District, Butebo and Butaleja replacing the late Cerena Nebanda.
Mao believes that if the opposition joins as a team, despite all odds, they can cause the long awaited regime change in the country.
