Opposition Parties in Tanzania Claim New Election Rules Flawed

Opposition parties Chadema and ACT-Wazalendo have outlined flaws in the ongoing review of election regulations, which, they say, may jeopardise the October general election. The National Electoral Commission has told parties to sign new codes of conduct or risk being excluded from election campaigns. "We sent our comments in writing but NEC is finalising the process without any meeting with stakeholders to discuss the final draft," said ACT-Wazalendo secretary general Ado Shaibu.
