The Igara West MP, Raphael Magyezi tabled the bill as a private member’s bill. The bill seeks to scrap the presidential age limit cap, which restricts the president’s age to between 35 and 75 years.
The Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee has drafted a list of 29 legislators to visit Museveni at State House Entebbe on 3pm on Tuesday.
He said they will ask him in regards to his earlier statements made in the press about contesting again for the presidency.
He explained that they expect to hold a very formal meeting with the president, with the arm of building a report without any bias.
Medard Lubega Ssegona, the Busiro East County MP said he doesn’t see the need to consult the president since people already know his views because he is the sole beneficiary of the proposed amendment.
Although the committee has generally been seeking the views of the stakeholders in regards to amending the Presidential age limit, and interrogating them, some MPs think President Museveni is most likely to take charge of the meeting.
“All members agreed that we should meet the president since he is a stakeholder. He will not be asking anything different, but this time we are going to him and because he is the president, so many things will be handled differently” Rwakoojo stated.
