The Speaker of Parliament deferred debate on the Opposition sponsored Constitutional Amendment Bill, 2019 to next week following complaints from MPs about inactive iPads.
The Bill moved by the Shadow Attorney General Wilfred Niwagaba seeks to scrap the representation of the army in Parliament, repeal the Office of Prime Minister and Vice President, reinstate presidential term limits and prohibit the appointment of Ministers from MPs among other things.
MPs were on Wednesday scheduled to debate the Bill only for Kalungu West MP Joseph Ssewungu to raise a complaint of inactive iPads and their failure to receive copies of the Committee report to guide debate.
Equally, Jacqueline Amongin, the Ngora Woman MP said that many of them have not been privy to the Committee report to enable them debate effectively.
In response, Speaker Kadaga deferred the debate to Tuesday next week to enable all MPs access the report.
