Parliament’s Legal affairs committee is this afternoon receiving proposals from Center for Constitutional Governance (CCG) on constitutional Amendment Bill 2015. Among the proposals presented, CCG suggests the removal of UPDF from parliament, and a reduced role of the Police in electoral process, which makes them partisan. CCG also proposes the abolishment of the death penalty. The group that is appearing before parliament this afternoon has noted that the change in name of the Electoral Commission should not just be a cosmetic change, but appointments through public transparent process and that the Chairperson of the EC be a person qualified to be a Justice of the Supreme Court. CCG also suggests the Judicial Service Commission should be given the mandate over the EC
