The study examined the influence of internal migration in the political development in Kampala District, putting emphasis on multiparty politics and elections. A cross section survey research design was used, and the sample population included 25 political party leaders, 110 civil servants who were selected using purposive sampling and 207 residents in Kampala District who were randomly selected and analysis was done descriptively. The study discovered that internal migration has a significant influence on the political elections and multi-party politics of Kampala district. However the study recommended voters not to elect leaders basing on migratory trends but on ability and to be keen against leaders who campaign basing on migratory trends to capture power, and also political parties to redesign their objectives for a national benefit that can serve a national purpose and not ethnic purpose.
