Dr Besigye has in the last few weeks managed to mobilise huge crowds at his rallies, creating the perception of a possible win.

However, NRM officials say crowds do not win elections, adding Besigye’s popularity is only urban-centred.

“What this country needs is a transition; and by whatever way the NRM junta end; in whatever form it ends, even if it is voted out, there will have to be a transitional period in which to restructure the state,” said Besigye.

Recent opinion polls have put Besigye and Amama Mbabazi behind President Yoweri Museveni who has been in power since 1986.

Other candidates in the race include Prof Venansius Baryamureeba, Joseph Mabirizi, Abed Bwanika, Maureen Kyalya and Benon Biraaro.
