Uganda: Elections

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what discussions she has had with the Commonwealth Secretariat on its report on the 2006 Ugandan elections. (138693)

Our high commission in Kampala, along with other diplomatic missions, had regular contact with the Commonwealth Observer Group in the run up to and during the 2006 elections. We continue to have high level contacts with the Commonwealth Secretariat on a range of issues in Uganda, including political governance.

The UK, along with our EU partners, has a regular dialogue with the Government of Uganda on all aspects of developing multi-party democracy and engaging with the opposition as a means of building towards the next elections in 2011. Our high commissioner in Kampala discussed these issues most recently with President Museveni on 10 May.
