    Opposition supporters have held protests in several parts of Tanzania at the slow pace of announcing the result of Sunday's general election.

    Police fired tear gas in Mwanza, while there have also been protests in parts of Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.

    BBC News - Tanzanians protest at delay announcing election results

    I suspect that an huge rigging exercise is taking place. Its time tanzanians woke up and fought for their democratic rights in a peaceful manner.

    CCM takes Tanzania election lead

    Tanzania's governing party has taken an initial lead in Wednesday's parliamentary and presidential polls, the electoral commission says. Out of 176 constituencies declared, the Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) party has taken 150 in the 232-seat parliament.
    While in the presidential race so far, CCM's Jakaya Kikwete is ahead of his rivals by more than 390,000 votes.
    Despite violence on Zanzibar, Africa Union observers say the poll was mostly peaceful and should be respected.
    Sixteen constituencies have been declared in presidential results.
    Opposition Chadema presidential candidate Freeman Mbowe, with 59,929 votes so far, says the initial results are "surprising and disappointing".
    Turnout was high and the only reports of violence came from Zanzibar, where opposition protesters were hurt in clashes with police.
    Poor performance
    Eighteen political parties are contesting parliamentary seats.
    CCM: 150 seats
    CUF: 19 seats (in Zanzibar)
    Chadema: 5 seats
    TLP : 1 seat
    UDP : 1 seat

    CCM's J Kikwete:
    450,000 votes
    Chadema's F Mbowe:
    59,929 votes
    CUF's I Lipumba:
    57,926 votes


    Q&A: Tanzania vote

    The BBC's Vicky Ntetema in Dar es Salaam says the opposition have performed badly in former strongholds like Kilimanjaro, where Chadema retained only one of nine parliamentary seats.
    "It's surprising and disappointing of course and it's definitely not good for the whole democratic process of the country," Mr Mbowe told the BBC's Focus on Africa programme.
    The Civic United Front (CUF) retained its seats on Zanzibar, but has lost two constituencies on the mainland.
    Ten candidates are in the running to replace Benjamin Mkapa, who is standing down after serving the maximum two terms.
    The election had been delayed for several weeks following the death of a vice-presidential candidate.
    Campaigning ended on a dramatic note on Tuesday, when presidential frontrunner Mr Kikwete collapsed at a rally.
    The ruling party candidate later blamed his collapse on exhaustion. He is expected to win the vote and become the next president.

    Katika vyombo ambavyo vilikuwa vinaaminika sana katika EA kwa kutoa habari ni BBC na katika chombo ambacho kimejidhalilisha sana baada ya wakuu wake kununuliwa na mafisadi hasa baada ya kuona Suzan Mungi na Mhando wamerudi na kupewa ulaji bongo basi ni BBC. Yupo wapi Majura, kina Machibya, Ali Saleh. Wote kimya.

    Nimesikitishwa sana na utangazaji wa BBC Idhaa ya Kiswahili huyo Salim Kikeke nadhani anataka cheo kwani alikuwa anatoa hoja za kuitetea CCM na Tume kuwashinda wao. Ni aibu kuwa na watangazaji wasio watafiti, huru na wenye kuuliza maswali magumu na ya msingi. BBC imejiaibisha. Aibu mbona Aibu!

    Members from the opposition Civic United Front (CUF) gather around the headquarters of the electoral commission on November 1, 2010. Some of them were singing and chanting "Why the delay?" and "You are tampering with results". On the semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar, where voting passed off peacefully, Ali Mohamed Shein of the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM or Revolution Party) was in the lead, according to results from 21 constituencies out of 50. Riot police were deployed and brought in a water cannon but had not used it and most businesses close by were still open. Zanzibar, which has witnessed bloody poll violence in the past, early this year put in place a power-sharing agreement whereby the party that produces the poll runner-up also gets government positions.
