The Constitution of Uganda is the supreme law, with binding force on all persons, organizations, and authorities within the Country.
The composition of the constitution gives people the authority to exercise their full sovereignty on how they should be governed and who govern them through regular electoral processes.
The current Constitution was Promulgated on the 22rd September 1995 by an all people’s representation in the Constituency Assembly, although several amendments have since been made.
It prevails over all other laws and customs that may seem inconsistent, with a mutual commitment to establishing a better social-economic and political order.
It was enacted considering an eventful history of over 30 years of socio-political turmoil, oppression, tyranny and exploitation in the Country.
