TANZANIANS’ VIEWS ON THE STALLED CONSTITUTIONAL REVIEW PROCESS 2017 - TWAWEZA
The most recent attempt to revise the Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania began after the 2010 general elections, when the country’s two major opposition parties, Chadema and CUF, made a call for a new Constitution. The need for a new Constitution had been a key pillar in both of their election campaigns. President Kikwete responded to this call by initiating a review process. The process however stalled in 2015, in the run up to the subsequent 2015 general elections, and has not been revived since.
