    Country Profile



    Background:
    Shortly after independence, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the nation of Tanzania in 1964.

    One-party rule came to an end in 1995 with the first democratic elections held in the country since the 1970s.

    Zanzibar's semi-autonomous status and popular opposition have led to two contentious elections since 1995, which the ruling party won despite international observers' claims of voting irregularities.
