Uganda Elections: Multiple Calls for Peaceful Process

“We may not have violence on election day itself. But depending on how the Uganda Electoral Commission handles the process of releasing election results – this is where the tensions will be.”

Despite the seeming tension, the CJPC director says, “People are expected to go and vote, and voter slips are currently being issued to all eligible voters. People are ready to exercise their democratic right.”

He recognizes the role of the Church in fostering peace saying, “The Catholic Church has individually taken steps to call for peace in two official statements and has joined other interfaith bodies in calling for peace during and after elections.”
