Uganda’s Political Outlook Post the 2021 Elections

June 2, 2021

Uganda went to the polls in January 2021 to elect new political leaders at all levels for the fourth time under the new multiparty political dispensation. Unlike previous electoral contests, the January 2021 general elections were not business as usual owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, which necessitated the enforcement of several measures by government to combat its spread.

This paper presents an independent computation of the poll outcomes, presenting the key statistics relating to the presidential, parliamentary and local government elections and highlighting Uganda’s political outlook post-2021.
