Tanzanian President John Magufuli will not seek to extend presidential terms in the East African country. Giving clarity on the subject, his party the Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) said in a statement that

Magufuli does not plan to make the change “at any time during his presidency”.

Some members of the ruling party are believed to have been calling on Magufuli to extend presidential terms from the
