Political parties request meeting with President Samia

TANZANIA Political Parties Council (TPPC) has appealed to President Samia Suluhu Hassan to meet with leaders of the forum to discuss various issues and listen to their views.

Addressing reporters yesterday, the TPPC chairman John Shibuda said the political landscape and its stakeholders were ready to work together with the government in the maintenance of peace, love and solidarity in both dialogue and criticism.

He said the only way to remove friction pitting the political stakeholders and the government was in having dialogue involving the council.

“Such sittings should be done in accordance with regulations governing political parties and should be the intention of the Phase VI Government in the revival of the country’s multiparty democracy,” he said.

He called on government leaders and officials to raise the bar for the country’s reputation by showing that Tanzania is a multi-party country hence all constitutional rights thereto should be available.

He praised President Samia for being the protection shield for the masses in providing positive results via her speeches.

“These deeds are a new awakening that raises morale and increase a new drive for the masses to be more friendly to their government, I congratulate her very much for steps she has taken,” Shibuda added.

In regard to issues of holding the late President John Magufuli in high esteem, Shibuda said he will be remembered for many things he did for his country and many Tanzanians know that.
