The year 2011 shall mark the next round of general elections in Uganda. This will be the second election to be conducted since political space was reopened in 2005 after two decades governance under the movement – no party – system.
The previous election held 2006 immediately after the reintroduction of multi-party governance had a number of challenges, similar other previous elections in Uganda. Part of these challenges could be attributed to the fact that political party activists and leaders, being new to active pluralistic political participation, were not adequately aware of their roles, responsibilities and how to engage with each other in the game of political competition. Cognizant of this challenge, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is supporting a comprehensive project by the Foundation for African Development to promote the understanding of the roles and responsibilities of political parties in the multi-party electoral process. Under this project, political party leaders and activists in selected districts shall undergo two days trainings on the roles and responsibilities of political parties in the electoral process, as one component of the project.
