Chama cha Jamii ambacho kimenuiwa kunyimwa usajili wa kudumu na Serikali inayodaiwa kuwa ni ya kidemokrasia ya Rais Jakaya Kikwete leo kimetoa majibu yasiyo na utata ya kwanini uamuzi huo ambao umekuwa ukifanyika kama njama kati ya serikali na uongozi wa juu CCM ni uamuzi wa kiwoga, usio na demokrasia na wenye lengu la kukipigisha magoti chama hicho kusalimu amri na kutupilia mbali wazo lake la kutaka kushiriki Uchaguzi Mkuu. Habari ndiyo hiyo... Kutoka Daily News: CHAMA cha Jamii (CCJ) has given seven days to the Registrar of Political Parties, Mr John Tendwa, to work on their demands otherwise they will go to court. The party is demanding that the registrar's office state the amount of money needed for verification of the party's status and declare whether the party will get permanent registration or not. CCJ spokesperson, Mr Fred Mpendazoe said in Dar es Salaam today that the party has already contributed for verification costs. "If by any means there is no budget for verification of the CCJ then the registrar has to tell us how much is needed for sending officers in 10 regions so that we can make contribution among the members," he stressed. Mr Mpendazoe, however, said that the funds contributed would be loaned to the government, adding that he is optimistic that the government will pay back. "I hope we'll get our money back in the next budget. The government has to tell us as soon as possible so that we can start contributing," he explained. Mr Mpendazoe added: "The registrar's office has to withdraw its statement (of not giving the party full registration) before the press and give the party permanent registration so that it can prepare for the coming general elections." Contacted for comment today, the registrar said he had just arrived from a journey and therefore would comment when he is back to office next week. The Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, Policy, Coordination and Parliamentary Affairs, Mr Phillip Marmo, also failed to comment as he was in his constituency (Mbulu).
