FINALLY: Museveni announces date for election of speaker, deputy speaker

President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni has written to Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga, informing her of his proclamation for the First Sitting of the Eleventh (11th Parliament) in which the speaker and deputy speaker will be elected.

Writing through his principal private secretary Dr Kenneth Omona on May 10, Museveni set May 24 as date for Speaker and Deputy Speaker elections.

“This is to inform you that His Excellency the President has signed the proclamation for the First Sitting of the Eleventh Parliament to be held at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds on the 24th day of May 2021 at 10:00am,” read part of Dr Omona’s letter, which the office of clerk to Parliament received on May 11.

The letter came hours after Kadaga responded to Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda’s request for postponement of the election to allow political parties’ caucuses.
