Uganda’s high courtroom has upheld a regulation that eliminated an age restrict for the presidency and cleared the way in which for President Yoweri Museveni to increase his lengthy rule.

In a majority choice on Thursday, a panel of Supreme Courtroom judges rejected a authorized problem to the constitutional modification that jettisoned a clause stopping anybody 75 and over from holding the presidency.

Museveni, who’s 74 and backed the modification, would have been ineligible to run once more when his present time period expires in 2021.

Many Ugandans opposed the change, which was extensively seen as handing Museveni a life presidency. Opposition lawmakers unsuccessfully tried to filibuster proceedings earlier than the age restrict was eliminated in 2017.

Museveni, a key United States ally on regional safety, took energy by power in 1986.
