In a pivotal moment for Rwanda's political arena, President Paul Kagame garners unparalleled endorsement for the upcoming July presidential elections.

Seven key political entities, including the venerable Liberal Party (PL) and Social Democratic Party (PSD), have thrown their weight behind Kagame, solidifying his candidacy under the Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) banner.


This coalition signifies a robust alignment within Rwanda's governance, as both PL and PSD leaders, historically allied with the ruling RPF, continue to hold significant roles within the government.
