Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Alliance for National Transformation –ANT is to assess its performance in the February general elections.

The party led by Gen Mugisha Muntu registered a dismal performance in the parliamentary elections after its flag bearers were defeated.  They are Paul Mwiru, the MP Jinja Municipality East, Gerald Karuhanga the Ntungamo Municipality MP and Arua Municipality MP Kassiano Wadri.

Muntu also contested for the presidency but garnered 67,574 votes.

For a party that boasts of developing grass-root structures, they have now moved to assess what exactly went wrong in the elections, and lay strategies for the next elections. 

Alice Alaso, the ANT National Coordinator, says that they will focus on recruiting more party members to make the party strong but also strive to keep the existing members.

She says that the assessment will take a month and it will involve sensitizing Ugandans about what ANT stands for before they move on to build party structures.

According to Alaso, the message of national transformation was misunderstood during the campaigns.

Alaso says that the party is going to seek opinions from Ugandans about how to make ANT a strong party ahead of the next general elections.

The team has so far met flag bearers in Busoga, Mbale, and will head to Teso, Lango, Acholi and West Nile and then Western Uganda among other regions.
