Yearbook 2004

Tanzania. At the beginning of the year, the Zanzibar archipelago began in practice the campaign ahead of the general elections in 2005. For several years, strong political tensions have existed between semi-autonomous Zanzibar and the mainland, and on the islands the suspicion is strong against the dominant mainland party Chama Cha Mapinduzi (Revolutionary Party, CCM).

Flag - TanzaniaAccording to CountryAAH, the total population in Tanzania is 59,734,229 people in 2020. A key issue for the work on establishing new voting lengths was which ones would be considered eligible for voting on Zanzibar. The local strongest party Citizens United Front (CUF) has long accused the CCM of moving mainland residents to the islands to erode CUF's position. A number of explosive attacks in February and March increased concern over violent confrontations.

In October, Zanzibar's regional parliament marked the islands' special status by adopting their own flag, the first since the archipelago joined Tanzania in 1964.
