House resumes business after suspension of six Opposition MPs
What you need to know:
- Security tight as Parliament debates age limit.
- Tension in the House with occasional interruptions from MPs opposed to the proposed removal of age limit.
- Minority report rejects the proposed removal of age limit seen as a move intended to benefit the 73-year-old president Yoweri Museveni.
Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has adjourned the House to 10:00am tomorrow (Tuesday) for the age limit debate to resume after MPs complained about microphones not working well.
This came just minutes after MPs voted to suspend rule 201 to allow members to debate on the age limit bill report.
During the afternoon session, there were 386 MPs present out of the total number of 451 law makers.
