The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) was founded on 16 December 2004. It is the main opposition party in Uganda. The FDC was founded as an umbrella body called Reform Agenda, mostly for disenchanted former members and followers of President Yoweri Museveni's National Resistance Movement (NRM). Party president Kizza Besigye, formerly a close ally of Museveni, was a presidential candidate in 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016 presidential elections. In November 2012, Mugisha Muntu was elected as President of the FDC until November 2017 when he was defeated by Patrick Oboi Amuriat the current party President until 2022.

FDC has been one of the greatest challengers to the NRM Party in the 2006, 2011 and 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections. Besigye was the party's presidential candidate, taking 37 per cent of the vote against Museveni's 59 per cent. Besigye alleged fraud and rejected the result.

According to NTV Uganda, it seems as if the party, one of the powerful opposition party in Uganda is bankrupt. The party's head offices in Tooro Sub-region has been closed over rent arrears.

"The Forum for Democratic Change head office in Tooro Sub-region has been closed over rent arrears." Tweeted by NTV Uganda.
