    Dear JF Members,

    It is high we ask member of JF who are scholars also in our academic institution to assign their respective students to perform research on impact of member of parliament speacial seats. especially those studying socialogy and polictical science.

    As you know many have been said already about this subject, however without a comprehensive analysis done for period of 2005-10 and 2010-15 we will loose again the batter and an opportunity to put this complain at rest.

    What is my expectation? One will find stats e.g. number of MPs in that categories... Number of questions asked, number of contribution made. Value of those contributions to national development e.g.

    There are those easy thing to catch out like how many MPs in that categories whom has been even elected by colleagues MPs to lead different committeee or what ever?

    These analysis are needed to be presented before next election and also before enactment of new constitution.

    Nevertheless this assignment can be done by NGO's and any other pressure groups... emotional statement won't help a thorough analysis will.

    Good luck.
    Kasheshe

    the idea is good, but what are your objectives?? I think u need to put them here first. Overall and specific objectives. Then what is the problem so far?? After having those on ur mind u can modify your title.

    Before you propose any study that aims to evaluate the impact of speacial seats MPs, first you must understand why women MP special seats were introduced in the parliament of Tanzania.

    With all due respect,

    Irrespective of the objectives and aims to introduce this system, it is an old system that was introduced to encourage and stimulate democracy in our country. Unfortunately that period has long gone it is high time to abolish this system now especially in this current economic situation.
    If the purpose were to encourage women participation, or people with disability in law making, it is now the duty for us to encourage our sisters (women and women with disability) and brothers (those with disabilities) to participate in competing with the rest of Tanzanians in electing members of parliament.

    In US and UK there is no member of parliament who is elected as special seat member and they have a much stronger economy than ours. Why should we bear the brunt of having parliament members who increase the government expenditures for just being in a certain political party?

    This is costly and not worth having them in our country now.

    Nadhani kuna mwanafunzi mmoja pale UDSM alifanya utafiti kuhusiana na topic hii. Ntaleta jina lake na title ya dissertation yake katika post ijayo ili aliye interested kuisoma aitafute

    However, it is only the comprehensive study which will reveal what you are advocating, whether the objective was met or not! For example we can go back to the desired group to give feedback that actually "those MPs special seats who represented you majority went for sitting allowance and they didn't add value to you and your life.... that is just an example.

    This is no brainer, for serious community whenever they introduce a new idea/plan and put it in practise/implement, they must come up with post-implementation study and see whether the objective was met?If met to what extent? If it didn't what went wrong, can it be improved... or is there any alternative or can the idea abolished completely?
