Ruling party faces tough challenge in Tanzanian election

DAR ES SALAAM: Tanzania’s ruling party faces its toughest election test on Sunday in more than half of a century in power as it seeks to fend off a presidential bid by a former prime minister who has vowed to create jobs that will help the poor. With two independent polls giving Chama Cha Mapinduzi the lead, the ruling party is still favored to retain the presidency and keep a parliamentary majority, albeit probably smaller.
