In an effort to increase the participation of women in the coming general elections, UN Women officials have met with the top leadership of the Electoral Commission (EC) to discuss the road map for the elections.

This is intended to come up with modalities of how women can have equal access and participation in these elections.

According to Adekemi Ndieli, the UN Women deputy country representative, there is limited access to information regarding the road map for 2021 general elections in terms of measures and processes.

She however said that UN Women is ready to offer support to the Electoral Commission in Uganda for women to access such information.
