Ugandans Launch "Free and Fair Elections NOW!" Campaign

-A +A

Gen. Museveni seized power 28 years ago

[Public Announcement]

For many years now, Ugandans have demanded genuinely free and fair elections that are not characterized by fraud, state-orchestrated terror and massive diversion of tax-payers’ money as well as international development assistance.

This demand, among other things, has focused on the need to institute measures designed to curb the entrenched, wholesale impunity that pervades the current electoral process.

These reforms are a prerequisite for peaceful political transition that will also provide the necessary foundation for the long term democratization of Uganda. A revamped new electoral management system is even more urgent today in the light of the proximity of the anticipated 2016 General Elections.

Against this background, political parties, civil society organizations and leaders, acting together in a non-partisan spirit, and on behalf of the people of Uganda, are sounding a clarion call for the urgent establishment of a new system for organizing and managing elections that can deliver genuinely free and fair elections.

The Call for Free and Fair Elections Now will be launched on Monday, 10 February, 2014, starting at 2.00 pm at St Francis Chapel Community Centre, Makerere University.

You are cordially invited to the launch of this Campaign as we chart the path for a better country and future.
