President Museveni meets NRM Mps at State House, Entebbe today
President Museveni who is also the NRM party chairman, is today expected to meet NRM Mps at State House Entebbe. The agenda of the meeting is however not yet known.
Reports say the meeting is coming amid reports that the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga overturned appointments of back benchers in Parliament that were earlier made by the party’s Central Executive Committee.
Last week, the opposition also claimed that there is plan by the NRM party to front the scrapping of election of president as a constitution amendment bill.
According to the spokesperson of the opposition Betty Nambooze, there are plans to take all the NRM mps to go to Kyankwanzi to consider a constitutional amendment to have the president elected by the Electoral College in a way that the party with majority mps in parliament will automatically assume the presidency.
It is not yet clear however, whether this is likely to be discussed at the meeting.
