Compendium of Electoral Laws and Regulations Tanzania 2016

Compendium of Electoral Laws and Regulations Tanzania 2016

Feb 2, 2017

This Compendium is a product of a collaborative effort between the Judiciary and UNDP that started with the training of Judicial officers even before the 2015 elections were held in October 2015. During the training Judicial officers were provided with few statutes and regulations in bound form. This time all statutes and regulations have been put in one volume.

The Compendium therefore will be a handy document to which Judges and Magistrate can make quick reference while handling election disputes in the future. More specifically, the Compendium will enable Judges and Magistrates to have a broad understanding of the electoral laws. It will act as a good and quick reference guide of laws for Judges, Magistrates and lawyers to facilitate speedy dispensation of electoral disputes.

The Compendium consists of some relevant extracts of the Constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania, principal legislations and subsidiary legislations.
