Igara West MP, Raphael Magyezi’s Constitution Amendment Bill set for first reading today in Parliament.
The age limit bill is listed item no.4 on today’s Order Paper.
Last week, Magezi tabled his motion seeking leave of Parliament to draft a constitutional amendment bill that seeks to remove the 75-year presidential candidate age limit from the Constitution.
He tabled the motion in absence of most opposition MPs who left the house in protest, following Speaker Rebecca Kadaga suspending 25 MPs over misconduct.
After suspension of their colleagues, all MPs on the opposition side decided to storm out of parliament in protest.
Magezi was granted 45 days to prepare the bill but it only took him less than a week to draft the bill.
