Parliamentary committee on human rights has recommended government to implement the domestic violence law and all security personnel who violate citizen’s rights be disciplined accordingly.
While releasing the report on electoral democracy and human rights as reported by the Uganda human rights commission in parliament, the chairperson of parliamentary human rights committee Jovah Kamateka said that, unless the population realizes that the security agencies are professional , the public will not respect their orders.
The committee in the report has also recommended that the military and other security agents be kept out of the electoral process because it’s one of the reasons for poor voter turn up.
The committee also wants the electoral commission to be constituted in consultation with all stake holders as the chairperson of this committee.
The opposition has been demanding Government to come up with the electoral reforms and one of them is disbanding the current Electoral Commission for an independent one agreed upon by all political parties.
