Mr. Speaker, Honourable Members of Parliament
This is the first time I have spoken to this Parliament' although I have on a number of occasions spoken to Members at Party and other meetings. It will probably also be the last time before the General Election later this year. In the past five years many changes have been made in our country.
Candidates in the coming elections will be seeking votes from many new voters and from a different political and economic society than that which existed in 1970. Many of the changes and achievements in Tanzania have stemmed from the work of this Parliament.
