A module on voter education intended to provide Ugandans with basic information about the forthcoming elections has been unveiled.
Launched by the Civic Education Coalition in Uganda (CECU) in Kampala Monday, the document outlines the rights and responsibilities of a voter during the electoral process; who is eligible to vote; where and how to register; what type of elections are being held and how to deal with election complaints and disputes. It further outlines the functions of elected leaders like the President and Members of Parliament, Lord Mayor and district leaders, among others.  According to Stephen Nyabongo, the chairman CECU, the objective of the manual is to equip Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) engaged in conducting voter education for the forthcoming elections.
Nyabongo says as primary users, the CSOs need to play a leading role in increasing people's knowledge on the electoral process and choose able leaders that can represent their interests objectively.
