My book entitled "Sovereignty of the People and Elections Management in Uganda: A Case Study of Presidential Elections from 1996 to 2011" has been published by Lambert Academic Publishing in Germany. The contents of the book may be summarized as follows:The book was guided by two cardinal objectives: inquiring into the manner in which presidential elections in Uganda have been organized and conducted since 1996; and analyzing the legitimacy of the electoral process in Uganda. The study was interested in finding out the extent to which the legal regime facilitates the holding of free and fair presidential elections; whether the electoral process is reflective of the wishes of the Ugandan electorate; and to ascertain to what extent the people of Uganda are sovereign as claimed by Article 1 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, 1995.
The study found that by and large, the legal regime is adequate enough to facilitate the holding of free and fair presidential elections. The problem though, lies with its poor implementation. Furthermore, it was found that the electoral process is not reflective of the wishes of the people of Uganda because it has relegated them to the periphery of political life.
