54% Ugandans don’t want the incumbent President Yoweri Museveni to return in the 2021 general elections, according to new poll.
The public opinion poll report was conducted by the Research world International in the month of April in 60 districts.
While releasing this report in Kampala today (Monday) Patrick Wakida, the executive director Research World International said that most Ugandans don’t want Museveni to contest for presidency again saying he should rest and let others also to govern and see how they can handle it.
32% members of NRM don’t want president to appear again on the next ballot paper in the coming elections while 68% NRM members still believe in his governance.
However 50% NRM party supporters said that there’s no perfect match in NRM to succeed Museveni.
The opinion poll results further show that newcomer Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine, would edge out Opposition doyen Kizza Besigye, although both would come in behind President Museveni. Mr Kyagulanyi, the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, would poll 22 per cent of the votes while four-time presidential candidate Dr Besigye would harvest 13 per cent.
The poll results also show that 20 per cent of the eligible voters are still undecided, a chunk big enough to thrust Mr Museveni over the finish line if he sways all of them to his side, or claw him out of the seat of power if they vote against him.
