Declaration of principles

"The vision of the UYD is that Ugandans together in solidarity shall create a free, just and democratie society".

The basic principles of the UYD emerge from four key tenets:

Freedom:
Conduct of human beings unconstrained by legal or physical barriers.

Solidarity:
The will to carry responsibility and do something for others.

Democracy:
Respect of the will of the majority and participation of everyone in creating the future.

Justice:
Fairness and equity in not only rule of law but also in enjoyment of opportunities.  The UYD wants to build a Ugandan society based on humanistic values. Human beings are different in many respects but the UYD believes that:

  • We are all equal as human beings. 
  • Freedom, solidarity, equality in combination with democracy are important prerequi­sites for human Iiberation and diversity.
  • Equal opportunities are necessary for all of us in order to grow, develop and enjoy good conditions of living. 
  • Privileges and rights enjoyed by a handful create economic and social differences in society. 
  • We all owe an obligation to each other. We must do something for others and that we must strive to build solidarity links with minority, under-privileged and weakest in society while promoting a society based on the common duty of humanity. 
  • Human values are superior to material wealth and in this regard, politics must be geared towards community growth, with community spirit, dose relations, friend­ship, compassion are central to our political goals. 
  • Society as a whole carries the big responsibility of channeIling resources to those who are in most need and must have the mechanism to distribute jobs, education and income in a fair and just mann er. 
  • Democracy is central in all spheres of society and the active participation of all the people in the socio-political and economic process is a prerequisite for a well func­tioning democracy. 
  • Political parties and all democratic institutions must exist in a w:ell functioning democ­racy. 
  • We can only buJd a democratic Uganda in a political frarnework which is totally geared towards total respecr for human rights and freedom as manifested in the UN Freedom Charter.
