A statement from State House said the president received the proposal seeking the amendment of Article 102(b) to remove the age limitation by a group from the ruling NRM led by Kyankwanzi woman MP Ann-Maria Nankabirwa.
Some leaders within the ruling party have been quietly mobilising for the removal of the age cap, to allow Mr Museveni, who turns 72 in September, to extend his stay.
