National Defense and International Affairs
DP doesn't promote the militarization of politics. Once in power, we will foster a tactically competent UPDF subordinate to civilian authority. We will move UPDF to its constitutional role defending the integrity of our borders and safeguarding our sovereignty. UPDF will be removed from domestic politics and civilian law enforcement. In international affairs, we will push for ratification of the East African Community Treaty, fostering regional security and fostering ties with our development partners. DP's international trade agenda is in favor of expanding market access for our exports, removing trade barriers and enhancing capacity for entrepreneurs in our economy.
