The National Resistance Movement (NRM) has launched a political road map in preparation for 2021 general elections that does not include discussions on who should succeed President Yoweri Museveni.
Justine Kasule Lumumba, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Party Secretary General, says there are no discussions in the party on who should succeed President Yoweri Museveni as the party presidential candidate in the 2021 election.
Lumumba says the NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC); the top party organ has never discussed succession. Lumumba made statement while responding to questions from journalists at the party headquarters at Plot 10, Kyadondo Road in Nakasero on Wednesday.
The Secretary General emphasized that the NRM constitution stipulates how the party candidate is elected. She said all interested candidates will be welcome in 2021 if they meet required qualifications.
She had just launched a road map of activities supposed to start this month with mobilization of party supporters to register and get National Identity Cards, a prerequisite for all voters.
Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi has been encouraging youth to get identity cards in preparation for the elections.
