On 29 October 2020, the NGO Bureau halted the operations of NGO, the National Elections Watch Uganda (New-U), on the basis that it is an illegal entity not registered or incorporated. The NGO Bureau in their statement also accused NGOs that are not registered with the Bureau of operating illegally. It should be noted that non-renewal of a permit every month after expiry attracts an exorbitant fine and several organizations are locked in the permit renewal processes. The suspension of the activities of New-U is in direct contravention of the Article 29 of the Constitution of Uganda that guarantees the rights to freedom of association and assembly.
