The swearing-in ceremony for Members of the 10th Parliament will take place on the 16th, 17th and 18th May 2016 at the South Wing of Parliament House.
A notice from the Clerk to Parliament, Jane Kibirige states that the Members of Parliament Elect will swear in as stipulated in the Constitution before they start their duties.
“As a fulfilment of Clauses 4 and 5 of Article 81 of the Constitution, Members of Parliament Elect are expected to take and subscribe to the Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Members of Parliament,” she said.
The swearing-in event is expected to start at 8.30am on each of the gazetted days.
The Clerk however, notes that all the MPs-Elect will have to follow the laid down procedures.
“All MPs-Elect are informed that invitation cards, car stickers and other documentation will be collected from Parliament starting on Wednesday 11th to Friday 13th May 2016,” the notice from the Clerk reads.
Kibirige adds that due to the limited space, each Member will be accompanied by only five people with parking space availed for one vehicle.
“Access to Parliament House will be through the main entrance on Parliamentary Avenue,” Kibirige said.
