The National Resistance Movement-NRM has promised buying media space for its flag bearers for different positions in the coming 2021 general elections campaigns.

Emmanuel Dombo says the party is cognizant of the challenges that its flag bearers will face in light of the Electoral Commission guidelines.
At the beginning of June, the Electoral Commission informed the country that during the 2021 general elections candidates will not be allowed to hold open air mass campaigns to limit the spread of Coronavirus in the country.
Justice Simon Byabakama, the Electoral Commission chairman said that all campaigns will be conducted using the media and other means that don’t involve gathering many people.
Dombo said this is why the party will be buying airtime to promote not only their presidential candidate, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni but also other flag bearers at different levels.
NRM party is to kick off elections of its primary elections starting next week September 4 with the election of flag bearers for members of parliament. These will be followed by other local government positions.
