  • Description

    TANZANIA HOLDS ITS FAIR-EVER PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN SEPTEMBER, AND YESTERDAY THE PEOPLE OF ZANZIBAR WERE TOLD OF ARRANGEMENTS. MORE THAN 35,000 OF THEM ATTENDED AN OPEN AIR RALLY ADDRESSED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE ISLAND'S AFRO-SHIRAZI PARTY, SHEIKH ABDUL KARUME, WHO IS ALSO FIRST VICE-PRESIDENT OF TANZANIA.

    THE ZANZIBAR LEADER CALLED THE MEETING SPECIALLY TO EXPLAIN THE ELECTION, WHICH HE SAID WOULD BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 21. HIS PARTY, SOON TO BE MERGED WITH THE TANGANYIKA AFRICAN NATIONAL UNION INTO THE UNITED REPUBLIC'S SOLE POLITICAL GROUP, WOULD MEET NEXT MONTH TO NOMINATE A CANDIDATE. IT IS ALMOST CERTAIN TO BE THE RULING LEADER, PRESIDENT JULIUS NYERERE. PEOPLE WANTING TO VOTE IN THE ELECTION WERE ASKED TO REGISTER TODAY (MONDAY).

    (A GENERAL ELECTION IS DUE TO TAKE PLACE SOON FOLLOWING THE DISSOLUTION EARLIER THIS MONTH OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY IN DAR-ES-SALAAM. BUT UNDER A NEW INTERIM CONSTITUTION ZANZIBAR IS NOT TAKING PART. THE NEW PARLIAMENT WILL PAVE THE WAY FOR A COMPLETE UNION BETWEEN TANGANYIKA AND ZANZIBAR).
