The Mayor of Haaspalu constituency here, Mr Umas Sukles, has appealed to Tanzanians to ensure the October 25 general election is held in a democratic manner for the good of the nation. He made the call here when addressing Tanzanian journalists touring the country. “There is also need for Tanzanian politicians to accept election results once they are defeated,” he said, adding that the majority of politicians have tendencies of not wanting to be out of government leadership even once they have been defeated in elections.
He said as Tanzanians heading towards the general election, politicians should set their mindset be ready to accept the results and drop out if defeated. “It’s obvious that Politicians have no tendencies of accepting the results once defeated, but it is good they exercise the humility and drop out,” he said.
He said those who will be defeated in the coming elections should use their time when out of the government leadership in order to learn on what the people want from them (politicians), in order to be in a better position to contest for leadership positions.
