Breaking News: Jacob Oulanyah Floors Rebecca Kadaga In Speakership Race

 

The long-awaited speakership race has finally come to end  with Jacob Oulanyah announced as the fully elected speaker of the 11th parliament with 310 against  Rebecca Kadaga’s 197 votes and FDC’s  Semujju 15 votes

Oulanyah who has been deputy Speaker for 10 years will now be in charge of affairs at the August House for the next five years, a position he missed out narrowly after stepping down for Kadaga on the advice of the Central Executive Committee, the ruling NRM party’s top organ in 2016.

And as we report this, Oulanyah has already taken oath as newly elected speaker of the 11th parliament

On Sunday, CEC endorsed Oulanyah to come unopposed as the party flag bearer but Kadaga decided to stand on the independent ticket.

National Resistance Movement (NRM) chairman and President Yoweri Museveni was present to witness the voting process.

The next order of business, after Oulanyah is sworn in, is to vote for a deputy speaker.

NRM’s Anita Among will be facing off against Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko. NRM leaning Nsereko is standing as an independent candidate.
