National Resistance Movement (NRM) legislators in Luweero district have postponed the campaign to promote the resolution to front president Yoweri Museveni as the sole party candidate citing the feud over the Luweero District woman MP by-elections.
NRM supporters and mobilisers in Luweero district are split over the party candidate.
Recently, Professor Elijah Mushemeza, the NRM electoral commission chairperson announced Rebecca Nalwanga as the official party candidate, drawing angry reactions from some party officials and supporters.
Now, Abraham Byandala, the Katikamu North MP who also doubles as the works minister says as NRM legislators they have been compelled to postpone the campaign to market Museveni until the party resolves the dispute on the party candidate.
He says they are still suspicious about the potential of Rebecca Nalwanga to win the polls because Local council III chairpersons and NRM mobilisers are opposed to her endorsement.
10 out of the 13 Local council III chairpersons in the district have openly refused to campaign for Nalwanga claiming that she is not marketable.
The LC III chairpersons have petitioned President Yoweri Museveni in his capacity as to intervene and cause primary elections despite that, the professor Elijah Mushemeza announced that there would be no polls.
