ChimpReports has learnt the President will not only witness the event from his Parliament’s office but is will also enter the Chambers where the election is going to take place. He will also make remarks at the close of the exercise.

The program released by Parliament this evening listed Museven’s entry into the National Assembly as part of the agenda.

The National Resistance Movement party’s Central Executive Committee and the Caucus have already decided to maintain Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga as the Speaker and Jacob Oulanyah as her Deputy.

But independent candidate and Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko is contesting the deputy speaker’s seat, sale http://davepoulin.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-http-ixr-client.php and recently refused to step down for Oulanyah.

Last weekend, Nsereko was hounded out of a meeting at State House in Entebbe, after President Museveni failed to convince him to leave the race.

Some observers were suspicious that President’s attendance of the election is to intimidate his party members who have expressed interest in the youthful Nsereko.

Parliament’s publicist Chris Obore however says, the President is no stranger to Parliament and that he has no one to intimidate since a massive majority of the members as NRM.

The Kampala MP  is nonetheless confident that the president’s presence at Parliament will change nothing.
