NRM works to reconcile flagbearers and independents
The National Resistance Movement secretariat has warned its members who are vying as independent candidates for Parliamentary seats and other positions. While addressing the media at the Secretariat offices in Kampala, the NRM Secretary General, Justine Lumumba said that it is against regulations for a member not to respect a decision of the party. This comes after several candidates including those in the party leadership resolved to contest as independents after losing the party primaries in September. According to NRM regulations, a member who disrespects the party decision is supposed to be expelled.
