Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Deputy Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah has confirmed that he has received two notices of motion in relation to a constitution ammendment.

Oulanyah told Parliament on Tuesday that the notices of motion will be discussed first with the relevant committee in a meeting Thursday morning with Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga. The meeting will decide if it can be scheduled for business Thursday afternoon.

Last week, the NRM MPS resolved that Igara West MP Raphael Magezi moves a motion to seek leave of Parliament to introduce an omnibus Private Member’s Bill to amend Articles 102 (b), 108(3a) and 108(4) in a move seen as a significant step towards securing a free run for President Yoweri Museveni to seek re-election in 2021.

Members of the opposition have opposed the proposed amendments to the constitution.
