Democracy means people and rule, in other words people have a say in who to govern them and how they can be governed. Democracy is widely considered to be necessary and important tool. If a country is to develop, politically, socially and economically, and the right to participate in the political and economic life of one’s state is guaranteed in most African Constitutions as well as in regional. Thus the value democracy lies in the hands of the people and their ability to fully and freely participate in the political life of their countries as well as Uganda. The analysis of the Uganda democratization process has been progressed and hindered by different factors and this includes ethnical conflicts outside interference weak institutions and weak laws. This is the reason why it is important to engage in the process of developing and refining the electoral process, and also understanding what is needed in order to have "a free and fair" election towards consolidating democracy.
