The first deputy prime minister Moses Ali has declined his nomination to be the next deputy speaker of the 11th parliament as it was being suggested by Hon. Betty Namboze.
Mukono municipality Member of Parliament Honourable Betty Namboze nominated Moses Ali as her candidate on the deputy speakership seat.
“I nominate our brother, who has been a minister from the late Idd Amin Dada’s regime up to date…,” She said.
Namboze said that Moses Ali should be the deputy speaker so that he can represent the elderly people and the members of the West Nile.
“We should vote Moses Ali as the deputy speaker to represent the elderly people and the people of the West Nile…,” Namboze said.
Moses Ali appreciated Hon. Namboze for loving him but unfortunately declined her proposal of him becoming the next deputy speaker for the 11th parliament.
“I thank Hon. Namboze for nominating me on the post-post of deputy speaker in the 11th parliament even though I was not consulted about it but I regret that I have to turn it down…,” He said.
However, some members of the parliament from West Nile said that it was not for Hon. Namboze to nominate Hon. Moses Ali and for her to say that he is the only lawyer coming from the West Nile.
Namboze apologised to the members of parliament while expressing her disappointment in members from the west Nile for not supporting Moses Ali’s nomination as the deputy speaker.
Among the people, nominated on the post of deputy speakership in the 11th parliament include Independent Nesereko Muhammad, Ssegirinya Muhammad who also declined his nominating and others.
