The Chairman of the commission, Samuel Siita, announced that the house committees will begin discussing the two chapters and on Thursday, the Drafting Committee will put on papers the combined views of the members.

Such views are expected in the House on Friday where a heated debate is expected, as members will be meeting to adopt the two chapters through secret and open ballot.

Chapter six which talks about the structure of the union is expected to draw a heated debate where the country’s president, Jakaya Kikwete already expressed his stance of declining to the three-tier government system.

President Jakaya Kikwete punched holes in the country’s draft constitution and took his ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi Party position in support of the current two-government system unlike the suggestion by his counterparts for the formation of three governments.

A three-government system would have the Government of Tanzania, the Government of Tanganyika and the Union Government, while the current Union government is such that there is Tanzania mainland and the semi-autonomous Zanzibar Islands both of which form the Union government.
