“It is not automatic that we shall support these ‘rebel’ members. These are still NRM members and it does not mean that whoever fights Museveni is democratic,” Mao noted.


“For example in Kampala, we have a good party member, Eddie Yawe who will stand for the seat once nominations are due and that will happen in other places.”


The affected MPs include Mohammed Nsereko, Barnabus Tinkasiimire, Theodore Ssekikuubo and Winfred Niwagaba.


Mao said DP will only support the fallen Members of Parliament in case they have failed to get suitable and credible candidates.


Last month, the Constitutional Court in Kampala ruled the former NRM rebel MPs were illegally in Parliament after being dismissed from their party over indiscipline.


The MPs have since appealed to the Supreme Court seeking an interim order barring the Speaker of Parliament from affecting the Constitutional Court’s directive.
