Kagame has been RPF’s lone candidates after facing no competition from other members of the party in the elections that started at the village level until he was officially unveiled and nominated to represent the party at the national level .
Kagame’s appointment by the party’s members to contest for the next term ahead of the presidential polls comes after he was given green light to stands more chances to join the race to lead the country once again after the constitution’s 101 article allowed him to run another seven-year term, if he gains confidence from the people and elected.

Kagame will looking to dominate the elections to retain his place at the top of the country but he arguably face tough competition from Green Party’s Frank Habineza and private candidates Gilbert Mwenedata, Assinapol Rwigara’s heir Diane Shima Rwigara and surprise candidate Fred Barafinda Sekikubo Nominate who declared their intention to run for the presidency if their candidacy cards are accepted by the Commission.
