According to Moses Mulondo, UPPA president, some of the 14 key points; need to restructure government, finding lasting solution to sectarianism in state institutions, enact necessary constitutional and electoral reforms to guarantee free and fair elections, eliminate corruption and militarism, participation of key stakeholders in the budgeting process and hindrances to the development of the multiparty democracy among others.
