The National Resistance Movement party which days ago laid off workers over lack of funds to pay their wages is set to elect new district bosses in two months.
According to a statement released by the party secretariat publicity, Rogers Mulindwa, NRM Party has scheduled to conduct elections for chairpersons of the newly created five districts of Pakwach, Bunyangabu, Kyotera, Namisindwa and Rukiga about two months from now.
The new development was announced by the ruling party’s Director of Finance and Administration Dr. Hassan Wasswa Galiwango on Wednesday at the party Secretariat at Plot 10 Kyadondo.
Dr. Galiwango held a meeting with 115 administrative assistants from all districts across the country, as part of the scheduled programs under the on-going restructuring exercise in the party.
The new districts that became active in June 2017, at the beginning of the current financial year 2017/2018, elected their direct women representatives in Parliament and the Local Government leaders last year.
The ruling party is also expected to hold fresh elections for the chairpersons of Mityana in Central and Budaka in Eastern. The NRM chairpersons of the two districts have since passed on.
Dr. Galiwango stressed that the elections shall take place before the long awaited LCI elections and the referendum on the extension of term of the President, from 5 to 7 years.
“These elections will be conducted before we have both the LCI elections and the referendum”, he said.
