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.
Tanzania’s GDP growth for the year is estimated at 6.9 per cent for the year, which is strong for the region especially in the current economic climate. Since the start of the start of the National Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper 1 (MKUKUTA I - in Swahili) in 2005 there has been a very modest drop in the percentage of people living in poverty (from 35.6% in 2001 to 33.6% in 2007). Due to population growth in the same period this has equated to 9% increase in the number of people living in poverty. MKUKUTA I was, however, also marked by significant improvements in the provision of public services including education, health, water, energy, telecommunications, and infrastructure, particularly roads. Provision of these services was made possible by increased domestic revenue collection as well as support from donors.
