The NRM national chairperson, President Museveni has allowed all NRM party members to take part in the forthcoming primaries. He said even those with cards and are missing in the party register can also vote.
He sent a letter to all NRM branch committees saying it is every member’s duty to take part in the party’s activities. These activities also include elections as enshrined in their constitution.
‘’Therefore, in exercise of the powers granted to the chairman under article 14 of the constitution, I hereby offer guidance that all NRM party members whose names appear on the register shall be allowed to vote,’’ the letter partly said.
It also stated that any NRM member whose name is not on the party register shall be immediately added to the register. Hence permitting them to vote if they are is above the age of 18.
Museveni further instructed village committees to verify that the person added onto the register is in the NRM. The directives from Museveni come after reports of names of party members missing from the party register.
Over 2000 names were reported missing in Serere from the party register.
On Friday, the ruling party will go into its primaries to vote flag bearers for various positions in parliament.
