The 1995 constitution of the Republic of Uganda under Article 78 clause (1) (b) and (c) provides for special interest representation in Parliament. Article 78 clause (2) provides for the review of representation after a period of 10 years with the purpose of retaining, increasing or abolishing such representation and any matters incidental to it.

In 2015 FES commissioned a study to assess the performance of the youth members of Parliament. This followed a series of meetings that developed benchmarks to improve their performance.

Currently, FES is a partnership with NYC that is consulting with a wider constituency for input and modification of the benchmarks on the performance of youth members of parliament at the sub-regional level.

Consultations have so far been conducted with the youth in the sub-regions of; - Rwenzori, Ankole, Kigezi, Bukedia, Busoga, Elgon.

A report of the findings shall be published and disseminated to the relevant stakeholders.
