Four-time presidential candidate and Forum for Democratic Change ( FDC) founding president, Dr. Kizza Besigye has announced he is not running for presidency in the forthcoming elections.

He made the announcement today while addressing the Nation from the Party Headquarters Najjanankumbi-Kampala.

Besigye says he is concentrating on plan B of the struggle.

Besigye arrived at Najjanankumbi amid speculation and ululations from gallant party youth who first refused him to address them without picking nomination forms.

The situation however normalised minutes later and Besigye closed the party’s nomination process with a keynote address where he said that he will support the FDC candidate, but he won’t contest.

Besigye said: “Today I came to be part of you as we flag off the process of ‘Channel A’ to continue. I can tell you that I have every confidence in our leaders.”
