Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Sekandi and Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda are politically rating high and are likely to retain their respective positions.

According to a source, President Yoweri Museveni has today constituted a team of the representatives of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Appointments Committee of Parliament chaired by the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and her deputy Jacob Oulanyah, to kick start the appointments process that will also include the opposition naming their representatives to the Committee, a procedural enterprise that will culminate in the vetting of Sekandi, Rugunda and the Ministers and State Ministers by Parliament.

A former Speaker of the 8th Parliament, Sekandi has served as VP since 2011, while Dr Rugunda was named PM following Amama Mbabazi’s ouster in September 2015.
