Kadaga Rejects FDC’s New Appointments

The appointment of Busongola North MP, William Nzoghu to the Pan African Parliament (PAP) replacing Prof. Ogenga Latigo and Buhweju County MP, Francis Mwijukye to replace Cecilia Ogwal as Parliament commissioner will not be effected over failure to satisfy the available rules of Procedure.

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga Tuesday rejected the new appointments made by the President of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), Patrick Amuriat Oboi, noting that the changes cannot be effected since the positions are capped with term limits.


The appointments were read to the house last week and the Deputy Speaker promised that guidance will be given after legal interpretation on when the appointments will take effect.


The composition of the Parliamentary Commission is provided for in section (2) of the Administration of Parliament Act and Rule 11 of the Rules of Procedure of Parliament to include four bench members of Parliament, section 2 (c) of the Administration of Parliament Act which require that the four MPs serve for a period of 2 and a half years.


In such a situation the appointment of Mwijukye cannot be effected since Cecilia Ogwal has not served her two and half years in office.
