"Youth have been asked to shun election violence and only support political parties that are ready to integrate their demands in their manifestos. The youths under the banner of the Youths Coalition on Electoral Democracy who are currently doing a nation wide youth manifesto caravan, want all political parties to factor into their agendas, issues that affect the youth. Recently the youth listed Job creation, quality education, better health care and youth friendly services, promotion of sports and talents and ensuring youth's participation in decision making as key issues affecting them. 'We have been traversing the Eastern and Northern parts of the country, educating the youth on things such as election violence which they must avoid,' said Teopista Kiiza the coordinator youth coalition on electoral democracy. According to Kiiza, the coalition is set to analyze manifestoes of all political parties and grade them as a way of guiding the youths who are likely to be the majority voters."
