Cameroon publishes provisional lists for general elections

YAOUNDE, Dec. 10 Xinhua | Cameroon’s electoral body Elections Cameroon (Elecam) published late Monday the provisional lists of political parties to run for legislative and municipal elections scheduled next year.

A total of 470 candidate lists were submitted by 35 political parties. 451 lists have been accepted, according to a statement of Elecam.

Candidates of the ruling party, Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM), are reported to be running unchallenged in 17 constituencies. Specifically, in the Center region where the capital Yaounde is located, CPDM runs solely in 7 out of 11 constituencies.

In the troubled Anglophone regions where a separatist conflict is ongoing, mostly CPDM, and Social Democratic Front (SDF), a major opposition party deeply rooted in the English-speeking part of the country, will take part in the elections.

Another major opposition party Cameroon Renaissance Movement (CRM) did not show in the provisional lists.

According to Cameroon’s electoral code, these provisional lists are subject to appeal before the Constitutional Council.

The twin elections will take place on February 9 next year amid threats by separatists to disrupt the elections in the two troubled English-speaking regions.

Government has assured hitch-free elections nationwide, stressing that “all necessary security measures” shall be taken to ensure that the elections take place peacefully.

  2. Allahu Akbar!!!!

    Amba boys and Amba girls will surely prove, on the 09-02.2020, to the whole wide world that ” one and indivisible ” SC and ” one indivisible ” LRC are TWO different countries with TWO different peoples.
    Simply put, the so-called ” one and indivisible ” LRC is a country situated east of the mungo and is different from ” one and indivisible ” SC.

  3. “In the troubled Anglophone regions where a separatist conflict is ongoing, mostly CPDM, and Social Democratic Front (SDF), a major opposition party deeply rooted in the English-speaking part of the country, will take part in the elections.”

    How many times shall we find ourselves in this LRC election mess? Are these enablers and accomplices too big to be eliminated?

    It is now abundantly clear that Fru Ndi has no intention of not standing in the way of this revolution as such MUST be eliminated at all cost. AGAIN, FRU NDI MUST BE ELIMINATED, NOW!!!!!


    • Supported. All enablers, should be eliminated just as lrc is doing to our side.

          When he told Chris Anu that it was because of SDF pressure on Paul Biya that the National Dialogue was organized and then the Special Status?

  5. As long as Fru Ndi`s cows were killed by people he calls Ambaboys and his house touched
    in the village, plus the boys holding and questioning him in the bush, not even satan will
    convince him to ever support SC quest for independence. Not even the support he was given
    in 1992, can prick him.
    Just see how the sdf, is`going 4 b4 4 back.


      Are we talking about Ekema Patrick again? NO. Is Ekema Patrick’s squad breaking into and sealing stores in Buea again? NO, NO. The chapter on him is closed.

      The chapter on FRU NDI needs to be closed. Until then this nonsense with him will continue.

  6. Kill all freemasons in Cameroon!!!!!!!

  7. Election in la republique is just a funny game to distract the people.
    One must have time to waist to pay attention to stupidity.
