DescriptionUganda's dominant party since it was established in 1986 (party officially registered itself in 2003). Party was founded by Uganda's President (since January 29, 1986) Yoweri Museveni and former president Yusufu Lule.

Museveni led the NRM’s armed wing, the National Resistance Army, which waged a guerrilla war against the regime of Milton Obote, which the NRM was able to overthrow on July 27, 1985.

Party began as one of two 'movements' which dominated the political scene of Uganda. The NRM, which was backed primarily by peoples from the south and the west of the country, and the Uganda People’s Democratic Army, headed General Tito Okello, which was backed by the Acholi and other northern peoples.

Museveni, self-declared President from January 29, 1986, was legitimized after elections held on May 9, 1996. The NRM won control of the National Assembly in legislative elections held the following month [Swahili: Harakati za Upinzani za Kitaifa (NRM)]
