The NRM Parliamentary Caucus Meets again in Entebbe this afternoon to reflect on the 2016 General Elections and follow up on issues discussed in the recent Kyankwanzi retreat.
David Bahati, the Deputy Government Chief Whip says that the Caucus meeting is particularly reviewing the Kyankwanzi resolve to endorse President Yoweri Museveni as the sole NRM Presidential Candidate in 2016. he adds that Members meeting today are devising means of moving this resolution forward.
The resolution based on a motion by the Youth MP for northern region Evelyn Anite was signed by over 200 members of Parliament all endorsing a proposal stretch Yoweri Museveni’s reign beyond 2016.
Pundits however argued thereafter that the outcomes of the Kyankwanzi retreat were undemocratic and were in contravention of the NRM constitution, which encourages competition for political office, including the presidency.
But Bahati says they intend totake the resolution through the appropriate channels.
“At the moment, the meeting will be on the follow up of the recommendations and resolutions made in Kyankwanzi and plan how to push them forward. There are going to be a number of meetings of this nature to follow up on the resolutions and politics in the country”, Bahati stated.
