Countrywide NRM Register Update Begins with Strong Member Turnout and Smooth Process


The countrywide update of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) register has kicked off with an impressive show of participation from party members. Across villages and branches, NRM faithfuls diligently verified their membership status in the iconic yellow books, marking a significant step towards ensuring a robust electoral process leading up to the 2026 general elections.

Rt. Hon. Namayanja Rose Nsereko, Deputy Secretary General of the party, reported a smooth start to the registration process on the first day. Venturing into Kampala and Wakiso districts, she personally oversaw registration points, actively engaging in registering members in some branches.

Namayanja emphasized the critical role of member participation in the exercise, highlighting that only registered members would retain eligibility to vote in upcoming structure and primary elections. She revealed that post-update, the register would undergo printing and then be subject to public scrutiny before returning to the national level. This, she stated, underscored the party’s commitment to transparent and accountable electoral processes, with mechanisms in place to swiftly address any concerns raised by members.

With satisfaction over the exercise’s smooth progression, Namayanja assured the public of the party’s dedication to possessing a credible and certified register in line with its roadmap. Nationwide teams have been deployed to ensure seamless execution, with no significant issues reported thus far.

NRM National Treasurer, Hon. Amb. Nekesa Barbara Oundo, echoed the importance of the update process during her membership renewal in Busia district. Stressing the significance of accurate data capture, Oundo emphasized alignment with records held by the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA).

“I urge everyone to utilize these five days to crosscheck their details in the NRM membership register,” Oundo urged. “Remember, this is not a voter’s register but a register for party faithful aged 16 and above. Let’s approach this as a collective responsibility, with everyone playing a vigilant role.”

The registration exercise is set to continue until Sunday, March 17, 2024, with the NRM aiming to ensure a thorough and inclusive process as it gears up for the electoral challenges ahead.
