According to the constitution that came into force on October 8, 1995 (revised several times), Uganda is a presidential republic. The head of state, commander in chief of the armed forces and chief executive officer is the president, who was originally directly elected for a period of 5 years.

The office of president has been held by Y. Museveni since 1986. The President has extensive powers; B. the vice-president and the government chaired by the prime minister, as well as senior officials and judges.

The legislature rests with the National Assembly. After the “movement system” introduced in 2002, which severely restricted the activities of political parties, was declared invalid in 2003 by court order, the multiparty system was reintroduced in a referendum in 2005.

Uganda is a founding member of the East African Community and is working hard to intensify cooperation with the other member states. In addition, the country has been participating in the African Union’s peacekeeping mission in Somalia in the fight against the al-Shabab militia with its own troops since 2007.
