Presidential Campaigns In Tanzania Intensify

General elections were held in Tanzania on 26 October 1975. The country was a one-party state at the time, with the Tanganyika African National Union as the sole legal party on the mainland, and the Afro-Shirazi Party was the only party in Zanzibar. For the National Assembly election there were two candidates from the same party in each of the constituencies, whilst the presidential election was effectively a referendum on TANU leader Julius Nyerere's candidacy.
