The Army has already started the process to have Gen David Sejusa replaced.
Last year Gen Sejusa was thrown out of parliament after he missed over 15 sittings.
Now the army spokesperson Lt Col. Paddy Ankunda says some names are already being fronted although he declines to give any details.
He says they now await nomination of candidates to the defense council by the Commander in Chief after which details will be forwarded to the Electoral Commission.
The Electoral Commission has said the election will be held before the end of January this year.
