Full parliamentary democracy did not come quickly or easily to
Tanzania. In 1962, the first constitution of Tanzania as an
independent republic shifted power from parliament to the
executive: specifically to the presidency. In 1965, the interim
constitution further eroded the powers of parliament in favour of a
one party state, controlled by the Tanganyika African National
Union (TANU). Parliament became little more than a token,
rubber-stamping organisation. This multi-contributory study traces
the development of multi-party democracy in Tanzania from the
appointment of the first two chiefs to Tanganyika's colonial
Legislative Council in 1945 to the present day. It highlights the
struggle for supremacy between parliament and the executive during
the period from 1968 to 1992, when parliament began to assert
itself as a vibrant multi-party institution.
