May 16, 2011 - PRLog -- Incumbent President Yoweri Museveni's decisive victory in Uganda's 2011 elections bodes well for stability and policy continuity in the country. In the culmination of a long-fought, bitter, and by all accounts very expensive campaign process, Museveni has won a fourth term, extending his rule to 2016, when he will have served for 30 years. Provisional results have Museveni winning 68.4% of the vote, a decisive margin over principal rival Kizza Besigye, who garnered 26.0%. As expected, Besigye has rejected the outcome, saying that 'an election conducted in this environment cannot reflect the will of the people'. Several international observers endorsed the results, including the Uganda Human Rights Commission. The organisation said the elections met international standards, although they denounced isolated disruptions to the overall peaceful conduct of the polls.

In terms of regional security risks, the LRA has intensified attacks recently in the North East of DR Congo, with over 30 civilians killed and 70 kidnapped. As a result the US has provided more than US$25mn in logistical support to the Ugandan army, which has been working with Congolese forces since 2008. There are still roughly 300 LRA rebels in the region, which due to its size, hampers efforts by the Ugandan army to track them down. The Ugandan army has been taking sustained military action against the LRA since mid-2010 in order to increase internal security in Uganda in the run-up to February's elections. Presently, there are around 5,000 Congolese troops in the region, as well as an unspecified number of Ugandan troops.

Over the forecast period, as Uganda's economy grows, and with regional risks and Uganda's position as a military power in the region increasing, BMI expects defence spending to rise rapidly, peaking at 36.52% growth in 2014 in nominal dollar terms, by which time the global economy should be at full speed again, on current projections. Defence spending growth is likely then to slow somewhat but only to 17.90%, still a high rate, at the end of the forecast period in 2019. In the overall economy, we are forecasting robust real GDP growth averaging around 8.5% over our 10-year forecast period as agricultural exports continue to grow, the country starts producing oil, and electricity generation increases, which together have the potential to stimulate non-agricultural sectors and reduce the country's energy import bill. That said, the country will remain vulnerable to energy shortages and adverse unpreventable climatic conditions, certainly in the short term.
