Besigye in parliament             

Former FDC president Col. Dr. Kiiza Besigye insists that there is still need to correct the terming of mps on opposition side in parliament.

He says the side that is not in leadership has to be termed as the “minority leadership” as their counterparts are termed as the government.

Besigye explains that it’s well stipulated in the 1995 constitution that after the parliamentary system of government was phased out in 1980s, that’s when the use of the opposition term was stopped hence it’s not proper to continue using the same phrase to those who are contesting for power.

This as he addressed a number of opposition mps in parliament as he turned up on invitation to brief them on what “the peoples’ government” has been up to for the last two years after the 2016 general elections.

In a meeting held from Leader of opposition boardroom, chaired by the chief opposition whip Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, Besigye informed the MPs that they are further increasing the sensitization of the public to be determined to leave in a free country and have influence on how the resources of the country are applied.

He says the people need to increase their competence on how to organize themselves and assert their will in terms of governance.
