Nandala fired shadow ministers from UPC and DP after when they backtracked on an agreed position by the opposition to boycott the East African legislative Assembly Elections.
Fred Mukasa Mbidde, the Democratic Party lawyer is threatening to drag Nathan Nandala Mafabi, the opposition leader in parliament to the constitutional court for firing shadow ministers. Nandala fired shadow ministers from UPC and DP after when they backtracked on an agreed position by the opposition to boycott the East African legislative Assembly Elections.
But Mukasa Mbidde says that Nandala has ten days to reverse the decision. Mbidde says that he has looked at various laws that include the administration of Parliament Act, the rules of Procedure and the constitution and discovered that it is improper for a single party to form the leadership of the opposition. He says it is unconstitutional and it discriminatory against small parties.
//Cue in: A party with the biggest…”
Cue out:…all parties and not FDC alone.”//
Last week Toterebuka Bamwenda revealed to URN that the Democratic Party president Norbert Mao had been tasked to draft a memorandum of understating. This would guide the opposition parties on how to relate both within and outside Parliament.
However, Mbidde says there is no need for a memorandum of understanding because the law must have reflected the plight of all parties in formation of the leadership of opposition.
//Cue in: You don’t need a memorandum of…”
Cue out:…accordingly, it is actionable.”//
Meanwhile tomorrow the Forum for Democratic Change National Executive Committee will sit to discuss the party’s damaged relationship with the Democratic Party and Uganda People’s Congress in Parliament.
