By Rwenzori Daily

KAMPALA– The National Resistance Movement NRM Central Executive Committee CEC has endorsed Deputy Speaker as there flag bearer for the 11th Parliamentary Speakership.

The 11th Parliamentary Speakership seat fell vacant after the death of Rt Hon Jacob Oulanyah I Seattle America on Sunday March 20th 2022.

Among was facing stiff competition from the Budama West county MP and State Minister for Defense Marksons Oboth Oboth, Deputy Attorney General Rwakafuzi and ten others.

At the time of his death, Oulanyah had only presided over parliament business for 9 months and 24 days since his election to the position on 24th May 2021.

On Monday, Cabinet set March 25 as the date for the election of a new speaker of Parliament.

This prompted the ruling NRM party to call for expression of interest from MPs.

The appointment of Among to the Speakership seat by the CEC means they will have to choose for the deputy speaker to fill the position left behind by Among.

The nominees will tomorrow face the Party caucus at Kololo Ceremonial ground in preparation for the Speaker election slated for Friday March 25th 2022.
