The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga, on Tuesday August 4, 2020, held a meeting with opposition politicians from the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) party, to drum out ways forward ahead of next year’s general election.
The ANT officials who met Speaker Kadaga were led by the Party leader and 2021 presidential candidate Rtd. Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu, who was flanked by Hon.Alice Alaso, another senior member of the ANT, among others.
Shortly after their meeting , Speaker Kadaga tweeted thus; “Leaders of the Alliance for National Transformation party (ANT) have paid a courtesy call on me at Parliament. Key issues of concern include membership to the Interparty Organisation for Dialogue (IPOD).”
Kadaga added that; “I will consult widely, especially on the issue of MPs that have since crossed from one party to the other; including the ANT party. The current law allows any MP to cross during the last 6 months of Parliament’s tenure.”
She also noted that; “We shall discuss whether Parliament can immediately change the register and recognize the said MPs. The stakeholders will include Parliament’s Legal Dept; the Uganda Law Society and others.”
