DescriptionThe National Resistance Movement (NRM), commonly referred to as the Movement, is a political organization in Uganda.

Until a referendum in 2005, Uganda held elections on a non-party basis. The relative strengths of the parties is difficult to gauge as no elections have been held since the party-politics was reinstated. The NRM dominates parliament, however, and is expected to continue to do so. The presidential elections of 12 March 2001 were won by Yoweri Museveni of the NRM with 69.3% of the popular vote. It began as the political body associated with the rebel National Resistance Army before Museveni came to power in 1986.

On November 17, 2005, Museveni was elected unopposed as NRMs presidential candidate for the 2006 elections

In the general election of 23 February 2006, the party won 205 out of 289 elected seats. In the presidential election of the same date Museveni won 59.3 % of the vote.
