Tanzania's Ruling Party Wins 99% Of Seats So Far

Incomplete results from Tanzania's parliamentary election show Tanzania's ruling party has won 218 out of 220 parliamentary seats declared so far, reports Mwananchi newspaper.

There are 264 constituencies in total.

Tanzanians also voted for their president in the general election on Wednesday.

The US Embassy in Tanzania suggested earlier that an overwhelming margin of victory raises serious doubts about the credibility of the poll.

Tanzania's electoral commission has strongly denied the suggestion the poll was compromised.
