UNITED KINGDOM: Being in existence for 18 years the NRM UK & Ireland chapter has not enjoyed a democratically elected leadership because elections have never been held since inception.
A group of volunteers who are desirous of reuniting NRM supporters and members in the British diaspora formed themselves into a planning team and moved a resolution to reorganize and reunite the chapter under a democratically elected leadership.
This group approached the NRM Secretariat, and with their guidance, formed a steering committee comprising members of the planning team and representatives of the various “factions” within the chapter.
The steering committee has worked hard, putting aside differences, to plan, prepare and organize the chapter’s first ever election.
They have strategised and designed various elective positions that will propel the chapter into unification, prosperity and ultimate achievement of the broader NRM vision.
The committee has mobilised NRM supporters to formally register on the chapter database so they can vote in the forthcoming elections.
Despite lack of funding from official channels, the elections are set to take place. The NRM membership has pooled together funds to organise the election slated for September 3, 2022.
This is only the beginning of a unified and democratic NRM UK & Ireland chapter. The NRM UK & Ireland chapter is the UK-based branch of the National Resistance Movement (NRM), the ruling party of the Republic of Uganda.
More is yet to come. Look out for further briefings!
