Deputy Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanya has Wednesday announced Gulu Woman Member Of Parliament Betty AOL Ochan as the new leader of opposition.
The announcement comes amid protests from within opposition parties over the reshuffle which saw the former, Winnie Kizza thrown out.
Aol was announced as the new leader of opposition last week by FDC party president Patrick Oboi Amuriat, a decision which Kizza contested.
Opposition Democratic Party also contested Amuriat’s decision saying it was illegal for him to take action without consulting with them (DP)
The turmoil attracted the attention of the public but whereas many expected the Speaker to reign on the issue, her deputy went ahead to confirm president Amuriat’s decision.
Going forward, Hon. Ochan will be in full charge of appointing the Shadow cabinet in parliament.
