Hon Jacob Oulanyah wins the 11th parliamentary speakership

Hon Jacob Oulanya has finally won the 11th parliamentary speakership leaving other contestants Hon Rebecca Kadaga and Semujju Nganda wondering how he did it.

This came after the ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) endorsed him as the flag bearer.

Hon Jacob Oulanya had contested with the former speaker of parliament Hon Rebecca Kadaga but the party denied her a chance to go on something she didn’t agree with as she decided to come as independent.

Jacob has won with 310 votes and Kadaga next to him with 197 votes while Ssemujju Nganda came last with 15 votes.

Jacob was the Deputy Speaker of parliament for 10 years and now set to take on the speakership role for the next 5 years 2021 – 2026.

The voting for the speaker of parliament was done by the new elected Members of Parliament.
