FDC: Why we hand-picked Dr. Rosemary Alwoc

By Keith Obiang

The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has explained how the party leadership came to zero on Dr. Rosemary Alwoc Ogwal, the daughter of the late Cecilia Ogwal.

Dr. Alwoc was introduced on Wednesday as the Party’s flab bearer in the March 21, 2024 Dokolo Woman Member of Parliament by-election.

“While there were members of the party who expressed interest in contesting, the decision to support Dr. Olwoc follows discussions between the party leadership, the family of the late Hon. Cecilia Atim Ogwal, and FDC members in Dokolo. Instead of holding primary elections, the party reached a consensus among its members. Dr. Olwoc Rosemary Ogwal is not only the daughter of Imat Cecilia Ogwal but also a candidate of exceptional quality. She has willingly sacrificed her comfort to continue the initiatives that Imat Cecilia Ogwal was deeply passionate about,” said the FDC.

Ordinarily, the FDC would have had to hold party primaries to identify the flag bearer. It is not clear what becomes of the abandoned yet interested FDC members.
