Happy New Month from The Parliament Watch team.
September was quite an interesting month with Parliament Officially breaking off but getting called back more than once. As you can imagine, elections are round the corner - so the legislative business in a way gets to be the 'least priority'.
However there were also very many laws that have been debated in the different sessions, those that were passed were related to the Elections: The Presidential Elections (Amendment) Bill, 2015 and the Parliamentary Elections (Amendment) Bill, 2015

I believe that it is indeed time to say - Welcome to the Uganda's Election Season'
But while Parliament is off - do keep hooked, our Twitter and Facebook feeds will be abuzz with lots of updates.

But first, some blogs and analyses that we have worked on:

The creation of new districts chaos and the drama it brought with it:

The battle for creation of new districts finally came to an end after Parliament approved a phased plan for 25 new districts.The process has been one of the most dramatic episodes in the 9th Parliament’s plenary sessions.

How the ‘election period’ is affecting the Budget Process (A Parliament Context)

With 3 months to 2016, the country is already in the midst of a tight political schedule. The general elections are around the corner and a lot of Parliament work has hit a deadlock. Majorly, the issue of lack of quorum during on going parliament business has become more apparent and inevitable.

Electoral Bills: Little time and unrealistic amendments

Over the years, the Speaker of Parliament, Hon Rebecca Kadaga has asked Government to table important Bills for Parliament’s consideration before the fifth session, normally reiterating her concerns at the high profile State of the Nation addresses and also the budget speeches.

An Analysis of Uganda’s Education Sector in Light of the Numerous Strikes

In the 1960s and early1970s Gayaza High School, a missionary aided girls’ school in central Uganda compared favorably with Nabumali High School, a 100% state supported high school in Eastern Uganda, in terms of academic performance, status and matriculation to institutions of higher learning such as Makerere University, then the only university in the country. The quality of leadership was also more or less of equal standard because most school heads had solid graduate and post-graduate qualifications gained from the colonial era.

Voting By Lining Up For Special Interest Groups: A Cheap Process In The Short Term With Expensive Consequences

The right to self-determination through voting is one of the most important civil and political rights, and as is evident in the 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, there is a guarantee that every citizen above the age of 18 years has a right to vote. The State therefore has the duty to facilitate and ensure that all citizens exercise that right.
