H.E AMBASSADOR Attilio Pacific, who recently headed the European Union delegation in Uganda who also  visited opposition National Unity Platform Party Headquaters in Kamwokya and held a meeting with Hon. Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi alongside other top party officials has shocked opposition politicians in Uganda.

On Friday October 30th 2020, he shockingly announced that EU observers will this time stay outside Uganda 2021 General elections, saying they were not officially invited to monitor/observe this very important National process something that has worried opposition fearing that elections may not be free and fair.
Speaking during the swearing in ceremony of the newly elected Uganda Parliamentary Press Association executive at Parliament, Ambassador Pacifici who was a special guest said, “We have not been invited to monitor Uganda’s coming elections. Maybe they will.”
He however said, “As many of you will know, the European Union has a long standing and firm commitment to upholding democratic values, both internally and externally through our foreign policy and longstanding partnership with third world countries.”
On this day, UPPA also organized a public debate to discuss The role of the media in promoting free and fair elections in 2021
