Ugandans’ views on multipartism

Ugandans support multipartism as a viable political system of governance but many are not satisfied with the way multi-party politics work in Uganda, the latest Afrobarometer survey shows.

A significant proportion of Ugandans say that competition between political parties often leads to violent conflict, that the opposition political parties and their supporters are often silenced by Government, and many fear becoming victims of political intimidation or violence during election campaigns.

Nearly a decade since the 2005 referendum on political system, these findings demonstrate that despite the low satisfaction with multiparty politics, many Ugandans support the idea of having many political parties, and think the opposition should work with government to develop the country.
