Uganda’s parliamentary opposition leader Winne Kiiza said she would challenge the age limit law passed on Wednesday
MPs approved a constitutional change which would remove the age limit of 75 for presidential candidates.
The change allows the current president, 73-year-old Yoweri Museveni, to run for an unprecedented sixth term in office.
Ms Kiiza did not specify how exactly the opposition would challenge the decision, although she hinted at a possibility of going to court.
Her objections included:
- The process and constitutional amendment being proposed by a private member of parliament
- The invasion of the house by security personnel in September
- The speaker allowing MPs to continue coming in after the voting process had started yesterday.
