Among the most important concerns for Washington, regional and international election observers was the cancellation of the October 2015 poll on the semi-autonomous territory of Zanzibar, in which Seif Sharif Hamad of the Civic United Front or CUF appeared to have defeated incumbent President Ali Mohamed Shein of the ruling party, Chama Cha Mapinduzi or CCM. CUF boycotted a re-run election in March 2016, ending a government of National Unity on Zanzibar that was negotiated in 2010. Paul Sisco reports.
