NEC returns appeals


The national electoral commission in Tanzania (NEC) has completed going through the appeals of various candidates contesting for seats in the government.

There were a total of 616 appeals in which 160 were from candidates running for parliamentary seats. 456 were of district commissioners posts, 25 were complaints and 44 were duplicates of said appeals.

Among the 160 appeals from the parliamentary candidates, 66 have already been returned while 32 have not. 57 appeals were dismissed and 15 were duplicates of said appeals.

Because the window to appeal is now closed, there are 20 candidates who are now qualified without protest.
