What is a constitutional republic?
A constitutional republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government's power over citizens. In a constitutional republic, executive, legislative, and judicial powers are separated into distinct branches and the will of the majority of the population is tempered by protections for individual rights so that no individual or group has absolute power. The fact that a constitution exists that limits the government's power makes the state constitutional. That the head(s) of state and other officials are chosen by election, rather than inheriting their positions, and that their decisions are subject to judicial review makes a state republican. Most notable example of a constitutional republic: The United States of America.

Immunity of the president must be deducted so as to facilitate charge against president incase he commit any kind of crime, I don't mean that Immunity should not be there but …it should allow any charges as article 13 of our constitution establishes that all the people are equal before the law, so when no charges can be filed against president what is thee essence of this article. Another thing there is no demacation between member of parliament and Minister, the ministers should not come from the member of parliament, so as facilitate efficiency in governance. There is no government of Tanzania(tanganyika) in the constitution, We can only find government of United republic of Tanzania and revolutionary government of zanzibar. The electoral commission member should not be appointed by the president so as to give the room for free and fair election There is a need of recognition of private candidate but it must be with a number of limit so as to avoid leaders who aim on personal gain instead of community. The Union matters must be put much emphasise,Zanzibaris must be given position, it seem this matter weaken the constiitution at large extent The constitution must allow the Tanzanian residing out of Tanzania their right to vote , the current constitution does not guarantee this rights Thre is a need of true separation of power and not like the way it is right now where by president has a power to appoint chief justice while he is from another organ of the state, also attorney general is also a member of parliament and judiciary as well

The President is both the head of state and the head of government (i.e. United States, most countries in the Western Hemisphere). This is as opposed to a parliamentary syst…em where the head of state is a President or monarch and the head of government is the Prime Minister (Britain, ex-European colonies).
Pure democracy essentially means that majority opinion rules; the Framers feared that this would oppress the rights of minorities. So, they provided a framework for a repu…blican form of government, consisting of elected representatives.
