  • Description

    TANZANIA HAS BEEN PREPARING FOR ITS FORTHCOMING PARLIAMENTARY AND PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, DUE TO BE HELD ON SEPT 21. PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATES, NOW BUSY MAKING CAMPAIGN SPEECHES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY, ARE ALL MEMBERS OF TANZANIA'S SOLE PARTY TANU, THE TANGANYIKA AFRICAN NATIONAL UNION.

    DAR ES SALAAM HAS ONLY TWO CONSTITUENCIES NORTH AND SOUTH. THE CANDIDATE FOR NORTH IS MR. DEREK BRYCESON, THE MINISTER OF HEALTH (THE ONLY WHITE CABINET MINISTER) AND MR. MANENO KIRONGORA. CANDIDATES FOR THE SOUTH ARE MR. RAMADHANI KIRUNDU, THE CITY'S MAYOR, AND MR. KITWANA KONDO.

    SOME 10,250 BALLOT BOXES HAVE BEEN SPECIALLY MADE FOR THE ELECTIONS AND THEY ARE IN TWO COLOURS: BLUE FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION - THE FIRST EVER TO BE HELD IN TANZANIA - AND YELLOW FOR THE PARLIAMENTARY ELECTION.

    DURING ITS LAST SESSION BEFORE DISSOLUTION IN JULY, ZAMBIA'S NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ADOPTED A NEW INTERIM CONSTITUTION FOR THE REPUBLIC WHICH MADE IT A ONE-PARTY STATE. THE PARTY WOULD BE FORMED BY A MERGER OF TANU AND ZANZIBAR'S AFRO-SHIRAZI PARTY.

    UNDER THE CONSTITUTION ZANZIBAR WILL NOT TAKE PART IN THE NEXT NATIONAL ASSEMBLY BUT WILL JOIN IN THE ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED REPUBLIC. A PERMANENT CONSTITUTION CAN THEN BE WORKED OUT BY THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY.

    THE INTERIM CONSTITUTION ALLOWS FOR 107 SEATS IN THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. THE HOUSE WILL CONSIST OF SIX COMMITTEES, EACH DEALING WITH A DIFFERENT ASPECT OF GOVERNMENT.
