The Alliance, at the Summit, confirmed Democratic Party president Norbert Mao, Forum for Democratic Change president Kizza Besigye, former vice president Gilbert Bukenya and former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi as the candidates.
The Alliance locked out Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago who has been attempting to join the race, first as a member of Democratic Party and later through his political pressure group Truth and Justice.
The Alliance is expected to announce the elected individual to lead them into the elections in 2016 anytime this week. More details will come as we get them.
The Alliance brings together some of the leading opposition political parties in the country under one roof inorder to find a lasting solution to the end of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni rule.
