PARLIAMENT has restricted the number of demonstrators who take petitions to the Speaker’s office to five people.

A statement signed by the senior public relations officer, Bernard Eceru, yesterday said the demonstrators must be accompanied to the Speaker’s office by the Parliament’s security officer.

The directive follows the increasing number of demonstrations and petitioners on the proposed constitutional amendments and the Domestic Relations Bill.

Speaker Edward Ssekandi recently warned the demonstrators against using vile language on the legislators.

The statement said the demonstrators must get permission from the Inspector General of Police before they march to Parliament.

The demonstrators must be peaceful and orderly and are not permitted to block any gate at Parliament House.

A leader of any group wishing to demonstrate at Parliament must give the office of the clerk to Parliament notice of not less than 48 hours.

Demonstrators are required to assemble in the Gardens between the Nile Avenue and plot 13-15 on Sir Apollo Kaggwa road, which is designated for such demonstrations.
