New Poll Places Museveni at 51%

Independent Presidential candidate Hon. John Patrick Amama Mbabazi has pledged to bolster local entrepreneurship by starting up a debt relief program that will see Uganda businessmen pardoned of the debts.

If presidential elections were to be held this day, medical http://demibahagia2u.my/wp-admin/includes/media.php President Yoweri Museveni would emerge victor at the exact winning threshold of 51% according the latest opinion poll.

The Poll conducted by Uganda Governance Monitoring Platform together with Nation Television and Research World International reflects a significant decline in the incumbent’s support from the previous polls.

The new poll whose findings were publicized this morning in Kampala was aimed at assessing the opinions and perceptions of voting-age Ugandans on the 2016 general elections.

It was conducted between 19th December 2015 and 10th January 2016 in 89 districts in which 2,685 registered voters were interviewed; 69% from rural areas and 31% from urban centers.

Asked who of the eight contestants in the presidential race they would vote if elections were held today, 51% said they would go for the incumbent Yoweri Museveni, 32% would vote FDC’s Col Kizza Besigye while 12% went for Amama Mbabazi.

However, if the poll was forced into a rerun between Yoweri Museveni and his 4th time contender Kizza Beisigye, the former would win with a slight 53% while the former would get 39%.

As per tradition, the poll reflects Besigye’s only advantage against the incumbent in the capital Kampala where he beats him 33  to 41%. Museveni’s support appeared overwhelming in rural areas, in eastern Uganda and in high income earners.

The central region according to the opinion poll remains the least prepared for next month’s election only 87% of the respondents confirming to have picked their national identity cards,  compared to 95 % in northern Uganda.

Overall, 45% of the respondents owned up that they do not know the exact date when the elections will take place. 43% know the date while 12% know only the month.

Some 4 % said they would not take part in the coming election majorly because they know it will not be free and fair.

Asked whether or not they thought the country needed change of leadership, 49% of the respondents answered in the negative while 46% were in agreement.

56% of thee 2685 respondents do not think President Museveni can peacefully hand over power if defeated in an election.

Opposition leaders have continued to dismiss these opinion polls as sponsored by the ruling government and detached from the truth on the ground.

While addressing press in Mbarara today, Go Forward’s Amama Mbabazi said the polls are useless in a country like Uganda where intimidation of voters is the order of the day.
