Age limit bill passed
Eazzy Banking

The first hurdle to make sure that President Yoweri Museveni, 73, will be able to run in elections in 2021 if the bill has been passed.

Parliament presided over by Speaker Rebecca Kadaga passed the first vote on the contentious bill to remove the presidential age limit, with a two-thirds majority by the ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) has attained 312  votes for removing the age cap while 96 mainly opposition MPs voted NO after today’s voting.

There will now be a further reading of the bill, which would allow Mr. Museveni to run for a sixth term in office.

At the moment a candidate must be under 75 to run for president.

The Bill is now headed for the third reading and if passed (as expected) it will be sent to the president to become law.
