General elections will be held in Tanzania in 2020 to elect the President and National Assembly.

Background[edit]

In April 2019 Chama Cha Mapinduzi MP Livingstone Lusinde suggested that holding a presidential election in 2020 was not a good idea due to the cost, and that the money should be used for development projects.[1] The proposal was made in order to keep president John Magufuli in the office till 2025.[2]
