After 10 years as president of The United Republic of Tanzania, Jakaya Kikwete will hand office to a successor to be chosen next month in what are expected to be the country's most closely contested elections. The vote provides an opportunity for Tanzania to uphold its reputation as a country committed to peaceful transition of power.

On the International Day of Peace, September 21, President Kikwete will discuss the challenges and opportunities for consolidating democracy and development in Africa. His speech and discussion at USIP is co-sponsored by the National Democratic Institute, International Republican Institute, and the International Foundation for Electoral Systems.
