Only the legal and parliamentary affairs, presidential and foreign affairs and the natural resources committees got new leaders.
Senior parliament public relations officer Kagole Kivumbi (left) said, â€œif you want to put it in percentages, the change can only be 30%.â€
Simon Dâ€™Ujanga (Okoro) replaced Eng. Ndaula Kaweesi as chairman of the natural resources committee, while Lule Mawiya (Kalungu east) replaced Loyce Bwambale as vice-chairperson.
Simon Mayende (Samia Bugwe) was reinstated as the chairman of the defence committee together with his deputy Betty Udongo (Pachuto).
Kivumbi dismissed allegations that prominent anti-third term Mps had been forced to withdraw from committees.
â€œTheir committees were oversubscribed, which had never happened before. I believe every Mp who withdrew, did it in good faith and for the good of the institution,â€ he said.
