The State of Politics in Tanzania

Third Quarter Report 2010

TANZANIA political landscape changed dramatically in the third quarter of 2010 due mainly to three factors:CCM allowed a broader participa-tion of its grass-roots members to vote during the preliminariesThe entry of Dr. Wilbrod Slaa, Secretary General of the opposition CHADEMA party in the presidential raceA more visible and active Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) during the preliminaries

Tanzania Ahead of Elections

Tanzania will later this year conduct its fourth multiparty general elections. But if the current socio-economic and political trends remain unchanged the country is unlikely to make any headway in the political transition for the foreseeable future. Although formal multiparty politics was allowed in 1992 after three decades of single party political hegemony, the major structural blockage to effective growth and flourish of multipartyism in Tanzania is the conflation of the ruling party, state and the consequential crowding out of other actors.



THERE is a broad consensus that the process of consolidating the transition towards participatory political system in Tanzania over the past seventeen years has achieved remarkable success. Whereas once predominantly under a single party hegemony, Tanzania today is characterized by a plurality of political parties. Though slow; the growth of the independent civil society has gained momentum.
