Tanzanian MPs have elected a new parliamentary speaker after the previous one resigned following a fallout with President Samia Suluhu.
Tulia Ackson, who had been deputizing in the role, now becomes the second female speaker in the history of the East African nation’s parliament.
Her predecessor Job Ndugai made the remarks about the country’s borrowing that angered President Samia.
Ms Ackson trounced eight other candidates in the vote.
She won by landslide with 376 votes. The parliament has 393 members. End.
