Economy and Social Issues
DP promotes equitable economic development of the whole country. Uganda is a home to 27 million people, one of the fastest growing in the world, over half of whom are under 35. As such while our philosophy has private enterprise at the core of economic development, we are focused on ending corruption and encouraging equitable regional distribution of economic development. DP's manifesto sets fiscal targets to raise revenue and cut the budgetary deficit by cuts in the huge public administration burden on the domestic budget. Social issues must be solved through dialogue. Ugandans should never again be humiliated on the basis of the social groups to which they belong including the freedom to practice religion, culture and non-discrimination on the basis of gender, race or age.
