Demand For Democracy And Support For Elections Declines

The demand for democracy and support for elections as the best means for choosing the country’s leaders have declined since 2011, new Afro Barometer survey findings have indicated.

According to the survey, although large majority of Ugandans feel free to say what they want 83%, free to choose whom to vote for 93%, join any political organisation 88%, people have to be careful when discussing politics for fear of political intimidation or violence 69%

Security agencies were identified as major source of political intimidation or violence as per the report conducted by Hatchile Consult Ltd.

The report further shows that nearly five in 10 Ugandans did not trust political parties, security agencies, courts of law, and the presidency to do their best to ensure that 2021 elections would be free, fair, credible and peaceful.

These findings were released to the media by Hatchile Consults limited at media engagement in Kampala.

In similar news, President Yoweri Museveni, the Inter-Party Organisation for Dialogue/ IPOD Chairman shared the first political summit after the General elections this Friday 5th March at Kololo Airstrip in Kampala.

NRM Secretary General Justine Lumumba said issues to be handled include the role of security agencies, conduct of political party heads and the political governance of the country to broker the peace process in the country.
