THE people of Teso have told the Constitutional Review Commission that two terms of office were more than enough for President Museveni.
"Even the best dancer must leave the floor for others to show their talents also," many speakers commented, adding that in future the President and MPs must be elected on the same day and should serve only for two terms of office.
The majority of the people in Soroti, Kaberamaido and Kumi districts in their views preferred Multiparty democracy. They said the Movement system was a one-man show, which was like one team playing football without competition.
Many speakers wanted pluralism and participation of as many parties as possible, including federo (federalism).
They said the Movement should also become a party and compete with other parties. The commissioners collected views from Kumi, Soroti and Kaberamaido between January 6 and 9.
Among contributors were elders, youth, and LCs. Few women participated in the exercise.
