The National Resitance Movement has proposed the amendment of the Electoral laws governing the LC1 Elections to include the Election of women councils.
Local council Elections still hang in balance because the president has not singed the Amended laws and the new commission appointed by the president has not been constituted.
Speaking at the ongoing 4 day retreat of the National resistance movement (NRM) the NRM secretary General Kasule Lumumba says she has written to cabinet and the Electoral commission seeking the inclusion of women councils in the upcoming Elections.
The Electoral commission had demanded for over 16 billion shillings to facilitate the Election of LCs after the government declined to provide funds to facilitate elections by secret ballot.
