The second monitoring report on the election coverage of on-going election campaigns reflects a noticeable improvement on the media performance.

The report covering the period of September 11 – 17 shows the gaps recorded in the first report of September 1-10 were checked by most media outlets.

There have improvements in sourcing of the stories whereby - the single source syndrome gave way to multiple sources and some outlets even engaged common people and aired or reported their views.

However there are some outlets which are still biased in their reports favouring the ruling party CCM or the opposition Chadema under Ukawa coalition.

Coverage of other parties apart from ACT- Wazalendo which trails the two parties – CCM and Chadema is marginal.

Equally coverage of those contesting parliamentary and councilor seats is not given prominence as to the two main contenders for the union presidency- Dr. John Pombe Magufuli for CCM and Edward Lowassa for Chadema.

Coverage of Zanzibar is negligible in the mainly mainland based media but it enjoys good space in Zanzibar Leo – the only newspaper from the Isles and some Zanzibar based radio stations and the ZBC television.

Coverage for presidential candidates in Zanzibar follows the same pattern as the union presidential contenders.

Incumbent President, Dr. Ali Mohamed Shein and his main rival Maalim Seif Sharrif Hamad of CUF take the lion share in coverage in the Isles though there are other presidential contenders.

The Media Council of Tanzania will continue to issue monitoring reports weekly on print media and electronic media.

Full monitoring reports can be accessed on the Council’s website www.mct.or.tz
