Tanzania held a peaceful general election in October 2010, which reinstated the same party (CCM) that has ruled the country since independence in 1961. However, citizens’ support for opposition parties has increased significantly, reflected in number of opposition MPs elected to parliament. With this increase in opposition MPs, the conduct of the parliament sessions has changed, putting more pressure on the government to be more accountable. Grand corruption involving high profile CCM members in the government have been debated openly with support from all parties in the parliament.

Tanzania’s GDP for growth for the year is estimated at 6 per cent, which is one of highest rates in the region. However, this high growth rate has not been pro-poor and so has not led to a reduction in poverty; the number of people living below poverty line has increased by 9% in the last 5 years.
