Opposition party Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) said it had no agreed position on the debate surrounding the proposal to lift the presidential age limit by a section of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) MPs.


While addressing the party weekly press conference at Uganda House on Wednesday, the party spokesperson, Michael Osinde Orach, said the party leadership was yet to meet to come up with the position.

“Our party president, along with other leaders, has been out of the country and as a result, we have not had time to meet to talk about a harmonised position”, he said.

NRM MPs last week agreed to move a motion seeking to table a private member's Bill to  remove the presidential age limit of 75.
