“There is no plan what so ever in the ruling and the biggest party to push the elections to any year. We are ready with the cash for that exercise and we are supporting those taking it to parliament,” Hon. Okurut pointed out.


Mrs. Okurut, who was speaking on behalf of the Party Chairman President Yoweri Museveni, also added that the party shall use its significant numerical strength in Parliament to block such a move that would deny Ugandans their constitutional right to choose their preferred leaders after every five years.


Sometime back, reports came out indicating that the 2016 polls would be extended to allow further reforms so that the elections is free and fair.


A bill was reportedly being doctored and would be presented before Parliament for debate.


Interestingly, Ugandans had already embraced the idea, the opposition included.
