The Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party’s presidential candidate, Patrick Oboi Amuriat, has said they will not challenge the presidential elections results in court.
Out of the 11 candidates that contested for the presidency on January 14, 2021 Amuriat garnered 3.24 per cent, placing him in the third position.
Yoweri Museveni of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) was declared winner with 5,851,037 votes while National Unity Platform’s (NUP) Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, alias Bobi Wine, got 3,475,298 votes.
The FDC party has since rejected the results but declined to seek court redress, saying it would be ‘a waste of time’.
Addressing journalists at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi Monday, Amuriat said the FDC does not accept the results. However, the National Unity Platform is determined to go to court in contest on the Saturday announced results.
