Mps petition Museveni over sole candidature

BY: Eyalama In Business On

Eleven MPs from the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) have petitioned the Constitutional Court seeking to quash the endorsement of President Museveni as the party’s sole candidate in the 2021 presidential elections.

They claim the decision is unconstitutional. On February 19, the NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC) sitting at Chobe Safari Lodge in Nwoya District endorsed Museveni, who is also the party chairman, as the sole candidate for 2021 and beyond.

The MPs also want the court to check the current CEC.

They say it has no mandate to declare Museveni or any other person a sole candidate for 2021 elections and beyond.
