Proponents of the anti-homosexuality bill plan to push ahead with it despite international criticism. It may be debated in a special session Friday.
After intense international criticism, proponents of an anti-gay bill before Uganda's parliament have removed a punitive clause that called for hanging people who have consensual homosexual sex.
However, they were expected to push ahead with the measure, which criminalizes the promotion of homosexuality.
The bill was to be debated Wednesday, the last day of the current parliament, but was dropped from the agenda. There were reports it might be debated Friday in an special session.
If not, the bill can be reintroduced when the new parliament convenes.
