The members of parliament from the ruling NRM party will today meet at state House Entebbe to discuss the marriage and divorce bill in order to come up with a common position.
The government chief whip, Kasule Lumumba told reporters at parliament on Thursday that as a ruling party ,they need to discuss clauses of contention to ensure that parliament makes a good family law.
She says that the caucus will also handle the petition of the 13 NRM male MPs in order to come out with one voice.
Those MPs who want the bill to be withdrawn have been advised to consult with their constituencies before a final decision is taken.
The bill continues to attract reactions from religious leaders, women activists and other stake holders on clauses like cohabitation and sharing of property among couples.
The women activists however insist that the bill which has been shelved for years should expeditiously be passed to solve the problems of marriages in the country.
