So far Parliament has postponed two plenary sittings due to the ongoing NRM East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) primaries.
First it was yesterday on Tuesday, when Clerk of Parliament, Robert Tumukwasibwe announced that there was no business due to incumbent party primaries.
Unfortunately, the elections were called off due to heavy disagreements between party’s MPs and the electoral commission over the number of candidates to be considered.
The ruling party MPs opposed what they said was the electoral commission’s decision to count only 6 slots yet 7 slots had been provided for.
So a vote recount was ordered and the elections are going to proceed today at 2pm meaning parliament has been left with no option except to call off today’s plenary sitting again.
