The Communications Officer of the National Resistance Movement-NRM Secretariat Rogers Mulindwa has said those campaigning for leadership positions in the party are misleading because elections are not on the agenda of the January 25 Delegates’ Conference.
Speaking to Mega Fm on Wednesday, Mulindwa said that the National Delegates’ Conference which will be chaired by Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, NRM national chairperson, has only five items on the agenda.
Among the proposed amendments include lining behind candidates contesting for different positions in the party as opposed to the current system of secret ballot.
Previous NRM party primaries have been punctuated by fistfights, allegations of rigging, bribery, court cases among others.
The party also says that the exercise requires a lot of money to pull off.
Pictures of candidates interested in different positions in the party had started making rounds on social media.
For example, Salim Uhuru is interested in replacing Godfrey Nyakana as the Vice-Chairperson Kampala, Godfrey Kiwanda, Sam Kutesa, Godfrey Mutabazi want to replace Hajji Abdul Nadduli as the vice chairman for Central Region.
Jacob Oulanyah also wants to replace Sam Engola as the vice chairman for Northern Uganda.
