President Museveni yesterday set the stage for a possible "meeting of minds" with his opponents, arguing that political competition should be anchored on constructive ideas - and not inter-personal attacks or rhetoric. "The role of the opposition which is working for the common good is to propose a policy alternative to those of the sitting government," he said. "The provision of alternative policy is what is needed to make the opposition an indispensable component of democratic governance." He added: "It is important, therefore, not to base political competition on personal ambitions of individual actors but on competitive programmes and ideas."
