JOINT COMMUNIQUE

Over the last 4 days (June 4-7, 2015), political and civic leaders of political parties, pressure groups and eminent citizens met in a joint consultation to chart a new political path for our country. As leaders, we are concerned by the current political and economic gridlock in our country.

The consultation was convened under the auspices of the Free and Fair Elections Campaign. The Free and Fair Elections Campaign brings together all democracy seeking forces in Uganda (seeking) to establish a credible electoral management system.

In spite of the calls to reform our distorted electoral management system towards and after 2011 general elections, and after five years of running government, the regime is now scampering and stampeding our parliament with last minute proposed reforms that do not meet the aspirations of Ugandans. Ugandans are aware that the character of deceit and ignoring citizens is consistent with the character of the current regime. Until this time, the government has dishonored the Citizens Compact on Free and Fair Elections and other proposed reforms advanced by other interest groups.

We are conscious that Ugandans here at home and abroad are depressed over the direction that our country is taking. We know that they are resolute in changing the course of direction our country is taking and are anxious to hear a message of unity. During the course of the meeting, we were able to make important decisions and reach a series of agreements on how to chart a new direction for the good of our country.

The purpose of this communiqué, therefore, is to inform the people of Ugandan and the international community that on Wednesday June 10, 2015, we shall communicate the outcomes of the meeting.

We call upon every Ugandan to remain unyielding and steadfast in working for a better future.

For God and My Country
