NUP Readies for 2026 Despite Internal Whispers: Party Roadmap Nears Completion

Uganda's National Unity Platform (NUP) faces the 2026 elections head-on, claiming their party roadmap is nearing completion. Recent reports, however, whisper of internal friction within the party leadership.

NUP's deputy spokesperson, Alex Waiswa Mufumbiro, downplays challenges, stating they are "cleaning house." Mobilization structures and party governance instruments are reportedly in place. Acknowledging limited representation in the 2021 elections, NUP vows to field candidates in all constituencies for 2026.

To strengthen internal control, NUP promises stricter protocols for issuing party cards and selecting candidates. This "streamlining" aims to ensure their representatives align with party values.

Mufumbiro emphasizes NUP's rapid progress, despite reported internal disagreements. He describes their movement as "a force to reckon with" and "moving at a terrific speed" towards the 2026 polls.

While NUP projects confidence, unanswered questions linger. The exact nature and severity of internal friction remain unclear. Specific details about the national program and card issuance reforms are absent. Whether NUP can bridge internal divides and achieve its ambitious goals for 2026 is yet to be seen.
