About Us

Our focus among others; is to promote justice in elections – led democracy and a broad spectrum of research.

“The intense bursts in which election petitions are filed, the short time limits in which election matters must be dispensed, their political sensitivity, and the public interest in their outcomes, collectively mean that electoral cases cannot be treated the same as other matters that come before the judiciary”

"Long before the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Uganda, rumours abounded of plans to postpone the elections due in 2021. Amidst these rumours, a private citizen petitioned the High Court to suspend all elections in the country for five years" @Ibnyei https://www.accord.org.za/analysis/complexities-of-democratic-elections-in-the-context-of-covid-19-response-measures/

Based on the @UgandaEc 2019/2020 Election Roadmap, we share a series of the unheld electoral activities due to covid19. #UnheldElectoralActivities

It’s important to note that Art 77 provides for extension of @Parliament_Ug under state of emergency. Constitution has no provision for extension of presidential mandate & this calls for transition @RebeccaKadagaUG @DanOgalo @UgandaEc ~
