Museveni Fronts Oulanyah's Son on NRM ticket for Omoro Seat

Andrew Ojok Oulanyah to stand for Omoro  seat

President Yoweri Museveni, who is also the director of decision-making for NRM, has arranged for Andrew Ojok Oulanyah, the son of the late Speaker Jacob Oulanyah, to announce a political rally in the Omoro Area.


A source referring to a rally between Mr Museveni and all hopefuls last evening, said the selection of the ojok was prompted by the embarrassment of his colleagues to reconsider the decision of one candidate who was running for office.

The other six  have stated they will not run in the by-elections in the Omoro region following the death of Oulanyah.


These include Omoro Regional Director Douglas Peter Okello, Andrew Olal, Francis Rwotlonyo, Richard Bongowat Luganya, and Ben Acellam.

Oulanyah's family members, following his fall, demanded that his son Ojok, 32, be confronted without opposition to complete his father's term in Parliament. The decision, however, was received with confusion between the applicants and a few NRM members in the region.


The electoral commission has set May 26, 2022 as the date of the decision of the Omoro Regional Parliament.


Oulanyah was a Member of Parliament for the Omoro Region from 2001 to 2005 and later from 2011 until his death.


As contemplated in section 3 (1) (a, b, c) of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, whenever a Member of Parliament bites the dust, or when the seat of the Member of Parliament becomes vacant under Section 83 of the Constitution, or when the seat becomes vacant under Section 4, The Representative of Parliament shall advise the Copied Commission within 10 days after the occurrence of the term; and a political decision, possibly Section 95, held at some point within 60 days after the opening.
