Mao Explains Why DP Delayed to Present Signatures To EC

The Democratic Party (DP) presidential candidate, Norbert Mao has said the party was slow to submit signatures because they had to follow some modalities as laid out by their constitution.

“As DP, we always want to do things according to our laws. You know some people started collecting signatures as early as last year. But we could not start collecting signatures before our delegates conference. And as you know, our delegates conference was repeatedly postponed due to Covid,” he said.

Mao said another reason for the delay is that DP had hoped that the opposition would unite and front a single candidate against the incumbent President Museveni but when he saw no hope he decided to contest to realize the party dream.
