“Following the resolutions of the National Policy Committee meeting of May 2016, The Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) will from December 9th to 12th this year, 2016 hold a national convention to usher in a new leadership.
“All positions from the Party Presidency to Committee Chairpersons will be up for grabs. All FDD members who are eligible to attend the Convention are encouraged to be delegates and freely participate in the elections.
“As a Party that strongly believes in the sanctity of democracy holding of the constitution will be a fulfilment of the Party Constitution and will help the Party to reinvigorate its mobilisation program in readiness for the 2021 General elections,” he said.
The FDD had scheduled their convention in August but postponed it due to the general elections which were held in the same month.
