Amos John Okot

Amos John Okot is a Ugandan pastor, politician and member of Ugandan parliament representing Agago North on the ticket of National Resistance Movement (NRM).

Okot’s political career began in 2011, when he won the Agago North seat to the 9th Ugandan Parliament replacing the leader of the opposition in the parliament Ogenga Latigo.

He suffered a political setback on 18 February 2016, when he lost his re-election bid to the 10th parliament to his challenger, Ogenga Latigo who polled 14,079 to lead Okot with 10,420 votes.

Okot challenged the result of the election in court with allegations of voter bribery, defamation and non- compliance with Parliamentary election laws against Ogenga Latigo and the Electoral Commission but failed to prove his case and was dismissed with cost awarded against him.

Okot made a political comeback in the 2021 general election when he reclaimed the Agago North parliamentary seat from Latigo who had defeated him 2016.
