At the invitation of the Government of Tanzania, the European Union established a mission to observe the general elections there on 29 October 2000.

General elections were held in Tanzania on 29 October 2000, with 16 constituencies in Zanzibar voting again on 5 November due to problems with distributing election material.

The observers were deployed throughout the country. They met government and electoral officials, candidates and political parties, civil society representatives and the media.
