On Wednesday, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) through the Central Executive Committee (CEC) endorsed Anita Among as the flag bearer for the position of Speaker of Parliament. This was after a meeting chaired by the Party Chairperson, President Museveni.
Following her endorsement, Anita took to Twitter to thank those that had trusted her with the flag.
“With humility and a contrite heart I would Like to extend my sincere gratitude to our Party Leader, His Excellency General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni; and, the distinguished Men and Women of the Central Executive Committee of the NRM Party for their vote of confidence”
“In the same vein, I also extend my appreciation to the Members of Parliament of the NRM Caucus for their unwavering support and indeed, the entire Parliament of Uganda fraternity for their overwhelming support thus far.”
“It is my earnest prayer that we conclude this process with nobility and decorum as a befitting tribute to our beloved departed leader, the Rt. Hon. Jacob L’Okori Oulanyah.”
The Opposition is also expected to get a flag bearer today. There are efforts for all political parties to front one person for the position.
