GOOD GOVERNANCE AND MULTIPARTYISM

THE ROLE OF APPOINTED AND ELECTED LEADERS IN PROMOTING GOOD GOVERNANCE IN A MULTI PARTY SYSTEM AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL
Despite the reintroduction of multipartyism to Uganda over a decade ago, shortcomings in democratic practice still prevail, both on a local and a national level. Furthermore, the last general elections held in early 2016 stood out for the high numbers of elected leaders entering office for the first time. In order to spread awareness on the functions of democracy in a multiparty system and ensure better service delivery to ordinary citizens, the Directorate of National Guidance, together with KAS, have set out to facilitate workshops for elected councilmembers across the country.
