President receives Kyankwanzi Resolution and NRM Primaries Report

Saturday 23rd August 2014

President Yoweri Museveni has received two reports; the Kyankwanzi Resolutions Report that gives him sole candidature of the NRM Party President in the 2016 general elections and two, the NRM Primaries Report following country-wide consultations done by NRM Members of Parliament recently.

The report on the NRM Primaries was as a result of investigations undertaken to find out the problems faced during the NRM Primaries in 2011 elections where many NRM Party members expressed dissatisfaction and disappointments over the way in which the elections were conducted.

The report on the Kyankwanzi resolutions was as a result of efforts launched to consult NRM supporters to back up the Kyankwanzi resolutions that suggested President Museveni as the sole candidate in the 2016 General Elections.

The report on the Kyankwanzi resolutions was handed over to the President yesterday at State House, Entebbe, by the Government Chief Whip, Ms. Justine Kasule Lumumba, who is also the Chairperson of the Committee while that of the NRM Primaries was handed to him by the Chairperson of the Committee, Ms. Seninde Rose Mary.

President Museveni congratulated and thanked the Committees that compiled the reports and the Members of Parliament for the good work done in consulting Ugandans in their constituencies and also for inspecting the status of service delivery in the respective Sub-Counties in the country.

"This is good work as far as checking what is happening on ground is concerned,” he said.

The President, however, said the issue of the 2016 NRM Candidate will be determined by the NRM National Executive Committee (NEC).

Mr. Museveni observed that the report was rich because it contains what has angered Ugandans adding, that it was good for Members of Parliament to assess what they have done at the grassroots.

The President also noted that the report has opened chances for the NRM Secretariat to organize regular meetings in order to get more information to ensure better work.
