While Tanzania had, up to this point, been a one party state, President Mwinyi finally relented and appointed the Nyalali Commission. In December it recommended the adoption of a multiparty system. However, a significant delay in legalising opposition parties allowed the CCM to mount a recruitment campaign and become financially self-sufficient.

The first national multiparty elections were scheduled for In the elections, people appeared more concerned about the continuing drop in their standards of living.
In the run up to the elections, the CCM refused media access to the opposition, and failed to repeal repressive legislation. The opposition also struggled to provide a viable set of alternative policies. It claimed it was being hindered and intimidated by the CCM. The CCM was eventually declared to have narrowly won both the Presidency and the legislature. The CCM continued reinforced the uneven playing field between it and the opposition and won easily on the mainland.
In Zanzibar, the CCM again took power, but the elections were marred by fraud, violence, and the detention without trial of CUF supporters.

A multi-party system is a political system in which multiple political parties across the political spectrum run for national election, and all have the capacity to gain control of government offices, separately or in coalition. Several parties compete for power and all of them have reasonable chance of forming government. First-past-the-post requires concentrated areas of support for large representation in the legislature whereas proportional representation better reflects the range of a population's views. Proportional systems may have multi-member districts with more than one representative elected from a given district to the same legislative body, and thus a greater number of viable parties. Duverger's law states that the number of viable political parties is one, plus the number of seats in a district. In these countries, usually no single party has a parliamentary majority by itself.

By the late s the main protagonists, the ANC and the National Party NP , were forced by circumstances into a stalemate which made implementation of unilateral conflict resolution strategies impossible. The transition was a long-drawn-out process which mixed confrontation and violence with compromise and negotiation as the main parties gradually abandoned old goals and moved towards positions based on tolerance, pragmatism and problem-solving. Apartheid as a juridical system is gone but it lives on as a socio-economic structure, a security system, a lifestyle and a mental legacy.
Democrats and Republicans are in a death match and the American people are caught in the middle. An issue cannot be tackled without the two parties being able to discuss them rationally. This is one of the reasons a lot of citizens are supporting candidates such as Senator Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, both of whom are considered outsiders. What if the problem is the system?
