1998 Tanzania

A long political stalemate on the Zanzibar archipelago appeared near a settlement in the fall after the opposition party CUF (Civic United Front) expressed its willingness to cancel the boycott of the local parliament. The crisis erupted after the election of CCM's (Chama Cha Mapinduzi; Revolutionary Party of Tanzania) candidate Salmin Amour to Zanzibar's president in 1995, which the opposition claimed was done by cheating.
