NRM to Hold Talks With ‘Its’ Independent Candidates.

by gloryfm106.7

The National Resistance Movement party [NRM] has said starting this Tuesday; it will begin holding talks with its members who were defeated in party primaries but opted to be nominated as independent parliamentary candidates.
Speaking to news reporters at the party’s Secretariat at Plot 10, Kyadondo Road in Kampala yesterday, Justine Kasule Lumumba, the Secretary General said that they acknowledge that the primaries weren’t perfect and that members could have legitimate reasons to contest as independents.
Lumumba said therefore, before they activate disciplinary proceedings that might lead to some members being expelled for standing against party flag bearers, they need to listen to their grievances and see whether they hold any water.  
According to indications from preliminary returns with the Electoral Commission, there are more independents than party candidates who were nominated during the week’s two-day nomination exercise of parliamentary candidates.
