Several Members of Parliament have expressed mixed views hours after their colleagues in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) endorsed a proposal to have presidential age limits removed from the constitution. At a consultative meeting at parliament , the ruling party legislators overwhelmingly agreed to embark on the process to amend Article 102(b) caps the age of the person aspiring for the highest office between 35 and 75 years. At least 245 MPs now plan to table a Private Members Bill seeking to open this up. Only one MP, Kumi Woman Legislator Monica Amoding, openly opposed the move. Other MPs have, however, reacted angrily to the move saying it is tantamount to selling the country.
