Twelve political parties operating in Zanzibar yesterday revived their alliance vowing to win the next Zanzibar general elections by strengthening the partnership including placing one candidate for presidency. There is no way we can manage to remove the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) from power in Zanzibar without reviving our alliance and field one candidate for presidency, the parties leaders said at a meeting held here yesterday. In the meeting chaired by the NCCR-Mageuzi Deputy National Chairperson, Ambar Khamis, the leaders said their coalition did not include the Civic United Front (CUF). They said apart from their intention to win the 2010 general elections in Zanzibar they would embark on fight for new constitution or major amendment of the constitution. The alliance would lay strategies on how to win all the 50 constituencies in Zanzibar. This is the right time to work together and the best way is to have candidates accepted by the alliance in each constituency, TADEAs Mr Juma Ali Khatib said. Apart from blaming CUF of being selfish, the alliance also said the opposition party deserves to be discriminated ahead of the 2010 general elections for not recognizing Zanzibar president and not involving other opposition parties in Muafaka talks. Mr Ambar Khamis and Mr Haji Ramadhani of SAU, Mr Haji Othman of UPDP, and Nassor Khamis of NLD said CUFs stance of not recognizing Amani Abeid Karume, as legitimate president of Zanzibar was unacceptable, and wastage of time. Once a president is sworn-in, he remains a president whether you like it or not. The only way to move ahead in politics with success is by working together, UPDPs Othman said. Political parties in the list of attendance in the yesterdays meeting include: TADEA, CHADEMA, NCCR- Mageuzi, SAU, UMD, APPT, Demokrasia Makini, UPDP, NRA, NLD, TLP, and Jahazi Asilia. A similar alliance was formed before the 2000 and 2005 general elections.
