The certificate of registration
Electoral Commission Secretary, Sam Rwakoojo, has issued a registration certificate to Gen. Mugisha Muntu’s new political party, Alliance for National Transformation – ANT.   

The certificate, which our reporter has seen, is dated April 25, 2019. Rwakoojo says the certificate was issued in accordance with the provisions of the Political Parties and Organisations Act Regulations.

Muntu quit Uganda's biggest opposition party the  Forum for Democratic Change - FDC in September last year citing irreconcilable strategic disagreements between him and the party leadership on how to bring about regime change in Uganda.  

On September 27, 2018, he unveiled The New Formation which has been a platform and name for his pressure group for recruiting followers, as he conducted nation-wide consultations for the new party that has now been fully registered.   

During consultations in Tooro region in December last year, his supporters advised him to take the campaign of building his party structures outside Kampala so as to win more souls into his party.   

He agreed with them, saying that all that would be possible once the party is officially registered.   

With Alliance for National Transformation Party fully registered the next step will be the launching, which has been set for next month at a date that is yet to be announced.  

According to the Electoral Commission’s website, there are now 30 registered political parties in Uganda.
