Uganda's 2016 Elections

This public reflection event is premised on the need to offer a space in which to appreciate where we are as a nation in terms of electoral democracy. Our intention is to make the critical point that the electoral cycle for 2021 begins in 2016 and not in 2020 which is an ‘election fever’ year as has traditionally been the case.
