The ruling party has in the realignment also promoted some District Secretaries to the regional level. The Party’s Ideology and Publicity Secretary, Mr Humphrey Polepole, told reporters in Dar es Salaam yesterday that CCM had also appointed 76 new District Secretaries and promoted 79 cadres from various posts in the ruling party hierarchy.
“Those who have been dropped from their posts (district and regional secretaries) should report to the party’s headquarters for other procedures,” said Mr Polepole, hinting that the party considered gender balance in the appointment.
At least 30 per cent of the new district secretaries are women, he said. “The appointment of new district secretaries in Zanzibar will be announced soon after completion of the assessment of general election and state of politics,” he added.
Mr Polepole observed that the job posts within CCM will now be announced to all members to attract competent executives, arguing that the special organ will soon be formed to oversee the recruitment exercise.
