This was revealed during the party caucus meeting convened at State House in Entebbe.

The other nominees for the position of deputy speaker withdrew in favour of Jacob Oulanya.

President Yoweri Museveni who is also the party chairman has requested all NRM members to fully support the party flag bearers for these positions.

He has further advised all members to always seek to resolve all party issues through dialogue and make decisions through consensus.

The president has also scoffed at all those who plan to disrupt peace in the country.

Museveni says as long as NRM is still in power security will prevail.

He has also warned the media against inciting the public saying they will be handled accordingly.

The speaker and deputy speaker of the 10th Parliament will be elected on 19th May 2016.
