Principals of Parties in parliament under the Interparty Organization for Dialogue (IPOD) have delayed their meeting on Monday morning while waiting for President Yoweri Museveni.
The leaders were today expected to discuss public funding for political entities, Public Order Management Act (POMA) and Electoral reforms.
This will form the talking points of the second IPOD leader’s summit that is slated to take place at Protea Hotel in Entebbe.
However, as soon as this article was about to be published, President Museveni, who is the National Resistance Movement (NRM) chairman was said to be held up in a cabinet meeting.
Museveni arrived early today from Arua where he had gone to commission infrastructural projects and deepen his wealth creation drive.
According to the programme, the event which was slated to commence at 9:00am with arrival of principals has been accommodated to cater for this delay.
Also as earlier reported, the largest opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) is not attending.
Other party leaders; Mr. Jimmy James Akena of Uganda People’s Congress president (UPC), Mr. Norbert Mao of the Democratic Party (DP) and all party secretary generals are present.
It is anticipated that midway the function, leaders will issue a joint communiqué on a number of pertinent issue.
