KAMPALA – The National Resistance Movement’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) is on Wednesday set to hold another meeting after failing to reach a consensus on how to hold the party primaries.
On Saturday, the Central Executive Committee held a meeting but could not agree on how to hold the primaries.
And NRM party spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa said members will meet again on Wednesday.
“The party membership and the entire public are hereby informed that the Central Executive Committee (CEC) convened again this Saturday under the chairmanship of H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Discussion of the party road map was key on the agenda and given the importance of this item, more consultations and discussions will continue,” Mulindwa said in a statement.
“The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday next week.”
Early this year, all the party’s organs including the delegates conference voted to have members line up during their primaries against a secret ballot.
However, with the onset of the current Coronavirus pandemic, lining up may not adhere to the Ministry of Health guidelines including social distancing.
This has created an impasse among the members of the top organ of the ruling NRM party on what to do so as to balance between not violating the government health guidelines but also organize successful and credible primaries.
