Following the mooted proposal by the Transformer Cdres’ Association Uganda, an association that unites the National Resistance Movement Parliamentary that lost the 2021 elections to have the president of the country elected by Parliament and local council leaders, several NRM bigwigs have spoken out about the move.

In his tweet, the Government Chief Whip Thomas Tayebwa said that as the NRM Caucus they were yet to receive the proposal despite it being a known political system practiced in various country.

“As NRM caucus we are yet to receive this proposal. However we must appreciate that the proposed system is one of the known political systems practiced by successful democracies like Great Britain, Italy, and Canada etc. Once proposed, full consultattions will be made with stakeholders.” Tayebwa tweeted.

The deputy Attorney General Jackson Kafuuzi refuted the claims and distanced himself from the arrangement.

“I have come across social media sites alleging an impending amendment to the constitution through a constitutional review commission. They all claim to be quoting me. It’s not true and whoever is circulating it must be attempting to fulfil his or her own intentions,” Kafuuzi tweeted.

Frank Tumwebaze, the Minister of Agriculture said whether the information is true or false, there is no harm in reviewing the constitution through a participatory consultative process.

“I thought many have been calling for different constitutional reforms? So how shall we achieve them without a formal review process? Tumwebaze tweeted.
