Tumwebaze advised that there is need to discuss and resolve the issue of electoral registers since in every primary election disputes have largely stemmed from that issue. “What if we did away with the issue of the party register and used the national register of the Uganda Electoral Commission in our primaries?’ He asked.

Tumwebaze went further and lectured, “When our national chairman H.E Kaguta Museveni guided that every person missing on the register but can be identified by the NRM village branch committee as a party member should vote, some non party members in some areas voted & this angered some contenders hence a reason to embrace the national electoral commission register.

He further said, “NRM flag bearers who win the primaries will still need to be voted by the same non party supporters in the general election. And if that is the case why bother with a separate party register?”

The educator reveals that since those non party members were numerically stronger and ended up tilting votes, it was an implication that they will influence the outcome of the general elections and since NRM is the largest membership party there is no way the non party members can outcompete them.

Commenting on the excuses by some party members who say they were trounced over president’s directive of mass voting that was infiltrated by non party members, Tumwebaze supported idea and said their participation in NRM primaries will help the party to recruit them after winning opposition in the general elections.

Later, Minister promised to author his opinion in detail on the above subject to further lecture on how the cited challenges that had since led opposition parties to draw loopholes in the ruling party, can be solved in abid to strengthen his party.
