Before Uganda gets to the 2016 General Elections, there are a number of amendments that need to be done in laws some of which affect the elections. The 1st one is having a return to presidential term limits which was removed simply because the Members of Parliament who supported were simply myopic.
The second important law is to do with how the constituencies are demarcated. We are moving away from unscientific ways of doing things. While it may have been acceptable that time to demarcate constituencies according to existing counties, it does not make sense any more. Given the over sized Parliament and a limited resource envelop as the donors keep cutting aid and that the population numbers leave many MPs unable to contribute to motions, it is very logical to have constituencies demarcated according to population numbers.
Third, the regional governments which are supposed to federate are long overdue. The best way imbalances in this country may be addressed is having regional federal blocks.
