Zanzibar Holds a Referendum

Zanzibar holds a referendum aimed at forming a coalition after upcoming polls

Zanzibar held a referendum aimed at forming a coalition after upcoming polls in a bid to neutralise the blood and hatred that have blighted the Tanzanian islands' politics for decades.

The referendum got under way peacefully on the semi-autonomous territory's two islands of Unguja and Pemba and the principle of a national unity government following 31 October polls was expected to be widely endorsed.

The referendum seeks approval for an amendment to the constitution that will create two vice president positions to be split between the parties that come first and second in parliamentary polls.
