Since 2002 Ugandans have not elected leaders at LC1 and LC2 level, in that time they have elected other leaders at both national and local level twice. During this period the country has enjoyed enough stability both economically and politically to suggest that perhaps elections and LC1 and LC2 are not decisive or a priority. An observation that was given credence in Parliament recently when the local government Minister appeared before the House Committee on Public Service and Local Government with a proposal to hold the long delayed elections. In considering this proposal it is appropriate to ask what, if any difference, such a vote will make to the lives of the people.
