UPDF to elect new Members of Parliament Today

Published on


The Uganda People’s Defense Force (UPDF) Council, is expected to elect new Members of Parliament today, at their headquarters in Bombo. The event was supposed to happen yesterday but was postponed by electoral commission.
The Commander-in-Chief, Gen. Yoweri Museveni is expected to grace the event.
The army is among the four interest groups represented in the Parliament of Uganda, with the remaining three being youths, workers and the disabled enshrined in the 1995 Constitution article 78(2)2.
The three groups have four slots each, in the August house while the UPDF has 10 slots.
The UPDF lost one member last year – Gen. Aronda Nyakairima, who was also the minister of Internal Affairs. Only the ministerial position was filled after his sudden demise, but the parliamentary seat that he occupied since 1996 remained vacant. The army is finally getting a replacement today and also elects other 9 members. The UPDF traditionally maintains its members in Parliament.
