Former legislators, ministers and political experts have advised the exiting members of Parliament to take a rest, avoid making hasty decisions in life and be cautious with the outcome of the electoral petitions.
The MPs r 75% were advised to spend their time on recovery and reorganisation rather that disturbing those that defeated them in the elections.
The advice was given during a two-day training for exiting members of Parliament organized by Speaker Rebecca Kadaga.
Facilitators led by former Bukedea County MP Oduman Okello and former minister Sarah Kiyingi asked the exiting legislators to first accept defeat, have a rest and reposition themselves as ordinary members of the society.
Okello also implored the outgoing legislators to refurbish themselves in terms of skills, knowledge, attitude, networks, values and character if they are have a good life after Parliament.
Experts in personal financial management and branding asked the legislators who lost in the elections to start small income generating projects and to rebrand themselves.
Some of the legislators who attended the training noted the importance of planning, being systematic, focused and purposeful.
According to information at parliament, roughly 72% of incumbent MPs lost their seats.
Of these, 59% of legislators were serving their first term in office, 27% were serving their second term and 14% were in their third term as MPs.
