The national youth MP, Monica Amoding has urged the leadership of parliament together with the executive to look for a solution to the ongoing standoff between the two arms of government.
Speaking to our reporter, Hon Amoding said that the relationship between the two arms has been deteriorating since the beginning of last year yet the two need each other to move the country forward.
She said that the two must be cooperative not like how it was last year where the two used to accuse each other on different issues.
She further warned those bodies that if they continue clashing they are likely to jeopardize the peace in the country which is dangerous to the citizens.
Hon Amoding’s call comes when government and parliament has failed to agree on whether parliament should be recalled and discuss the arrest of MPs over the death of late Cerina Nebanda.
Government says that it is not necessary to recall parliament to discuss the mentioned issues because they have been handled already while MPs say that parliament should be recalled and discuss the agent matters in the country.
Recently president Museveni was quoted saying that over his dead body will parliament be recalled .The MPs say that Mr Museveni doesn’t have powers to stop parliament to be recalled
Rubaga south MP John Ken Lukyamuzi says that the statement the president made disqualifies him to be the president of this country.
“Mr President should apologize to the country for making an intimidating statement. Recalling the House is a constitutional matter for him to say that over his dead body parliament will not be recalled indicates that he abuses the powers of the constitution” He noted
“We as MP are blaming Mr president for calling us idiots and fools and he has again made another blander of saying that over his dead body parliament will not be recalled” Hon Lukyamuzi added
