General elections will be held in Uganda on 14 January 2021 to elect the President and the Parliament.

Eleven candidates were registered to contest the election. They include: Yoweri Museveni (National Resistance Movement), Bobi Wine (National Unity Platform), John Katumba (Independent), Willy Mayambala (Independent), Fred Mwesigye (Independent), Henry Tumukunde (Independent).

Opera News understands that the President of Uganda is elected using the two-round system, with candidates needing to receive at least 50 per cent of the vote to be elected in the first round.

Chapter 142 of the Presidential Elections Act of 2000 stipulates that presidential candidates must be a citizen of Uganda by birth and be qualified to be an MP.
Candidates are also required to be of sound mind and have no formal connection with the Electoral Commission of Uganda. Term limits were abolished in 2005.
The elections are supervised by the Electoral Commission of Uganda.
