UPDF spokesman Lt. Col. Shaban Bantariza urged politicians to carry on with civic education on the referendum.
He said in some parts, where rebels are suspected to be hiding, politicians should alert the army to provide security.
Bantariza was responding to politicians who wondered whether the north was safe for civic education.
â€œThe situation has normalised and 90% of the region is rebel-free. The LRA command structure has been weakened with most top commanders and advisers were captured and others surrendered,â€ Bantariza told a press briefing in Kampala last week.
He said there were about 300 rebels with about 10 commanders and 150 guns in the north.
