Uganda Elections

In Uganda, President Yuwere Museveni has won re-election by a wide margin. There were some irregularities, but international observers say the overall voting was "correctly conducted." Museveni's opponent vowed to contest the results and said his followers might start a campaign of civil disobedience. Uganda is essentially a one party state. This election occurred within the so-called "no party revolutionary movement," but analysts say Uganda will have to move toward a multi-party system.
