Poll 'a timely wake-up call for MPs'

From The Citizen, Dar es Salaam
By Mkinga Mkinga and Bernard James

The Synovate survey indicated that MPs from Iringa, Unguja, Dodoma, Manyara, Morogoro, Rukwa, Ruvuma, Mtwara, Mwanza and Tanga are more in danger of losing their seats than those in other regions.

A study indicating that over half of the serving MPs might lose seats were elections held today has been described by some intellectuals as a wake-up call to them before next year's polls.

In random interviews conducted by The Citizen yesterday, they indicated that the trend indicated narrowing chances for the ruling CCM to win next year's general election by landslide.

But others said the study can only be taken as a challenge and not the voters' verdict on their MPs.
