All the thirteen candidates had successfully picked nomination forms from the party’s Electoral Commission (EC) offices at the headquarters in Kampala by Tuesday evening.

They include the country’s incumbent parliament Deputy Speaker, Anita Among who is seemingly not satisfied with the position she is holding thus efforts to occupy the fallen bosses’ office.

Citing medical reasons, Among who was earlier seen at parliament did not show up in-person but declared her candidacy through her personal assistant, Mary Athieno, who picked her nomination forms from the NRM Secretariat.

Other members are; Jackson Kafuuzi, Sarah Opendi, Theodore Sekikubo, Atima Jackson, Felix Okot Ogong, Jacob Oboth Oboth, Hanson Obua, Alex Brandon, Jane Ruth Aceng, Florence Asiimwe, John Okot Amos, Pius wakabi.
All the above seek to replace Jacob Oulanyah who passed on March 20 in Seattle, the US where he was being treated at.

The late Speaker was elected to that position on May 24, 2021, after defeating the former Speaker Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga.

He had also served as Deputy Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament, from May 2011 until May 2021.
