Pictorial: Parliament Defers Presidential Age Limit Debate

Comments 504 Views Kampala, Uganda

 

There was chaos in parliament on Thursday as MPs waited to debate the much-anticipated motion on amending the presidential age limit.
 
However, this could not happen as the Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah deferred the debate to next week saying that they needed more time to understand the motion.
 
With this decision, the Opposition demanded for the adjournment of the House citing insecurity in different parts of the country. As all this happened, URN witnessed the drama in the Chambers. The House was unusually filled to capacity leaving a number of MPs standing while others sat on the floor.
