President Museveni has commended the good working relationship between Parliament and the Executive, which he said has contributed to the country’s stability and progress.

The President, who was delivering the State of the Nation Address to Parliament, praised the Speaker, Anita Annet Among and her team for their support in passing critical bills since the previous address, ensuring a smooth legislative process. 

The State of the Nations Address, which marked the start of the Fourth Session of the 11th Parliament, was held at Kololo Independence grounds on Thursday, 6 June 2024.

Parliament, during the session that ended in May this year passed a total of 47 bills in 87 sittings. Some of the key bills were those that rationalised several government agencies.

President Museveni acknowledged that the past challenges where some actors attempted to undermine the Ugandan revolution through Parliament, which he noted as provocative but managed peacefully.

"I want to salute the Speaker, the Deputy Speaker [Thomas Tayebwa], and the National Resistance Movement (NRM) MPs. In the past, there was a risky and shallow tendency by some actors that would try to use Parliament to undermine the Ugandan Revolution, which is part of the African Revolution,” he said, adding that “This, of course, was a miscalculation that was provocative but we managed to handle it peacefully. Rt. Hon. Speaker and your team, I congratulate you for working harmoniously with the Executive."

“I am told some of the foreigners are saying that the Speaker Anita Among, because she does not undermine, she is not a good Speaker because she should be sabotaging government. Very risky miscalculation,” he said.

The President also commended the Judiciary for its role together with Parliament in synthesising a rational and transparent budget for the country, further emphasising the collective effort in governance.

He expressed his hope for a fruitful session ahead, reaffirming his commitment to the continued progress and development of Uganda.
