Subscribe to access this work and thousands more

Democracy is widely considered to be a necessary and important tool if a country is to develop politically, economically and socially. This is why Lijphart referred to the electoral system as the most fundamental element of representative democracy. The foundation for election rights is found in article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). This provision has been reinforced by article 25 of International Covenant on civil and political rights. However democracy has remained elusive in Uganda inspite of elections being conducted at regular intervals. The question therefore, that this research aims to look at is does electioneering necessarily produce democratic governance? Or is the electoral process in existence in Uganda sufficient enough to produce democratic governance1
