President Museveni is scheduled to address Parliament on March 16, Speaker Anita Among has said.
Among told legislators on Thursday that, “President will address the House on matters of national importance concerning the country and I urge you [MPs] to be in the House to hear what the President will say on what we can do to change our economy and society.”
Article 101(2) of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda stipulates that the President may, also, in consultation with the Speaker, address Parliament from time to time, on any matter of national importance.
Pursuant to this article, the President last addressed the House on 20 June 2018 on the state of security in the country.
Members of Parliament have on several occasions sought to meet the President on matters of national interest including the security situation in the country.
