Le SDF d’opposition conditionne sa participation aux élections

RFI | Au Cameroun, après le MRC de l’opposant Maurice Kamto, le SDF, un autre parti politique majeur, menace à son tour de ne pas prendre part aux élections législatives et municipales convoquées pour le 9 février 2020. Le parti de Ni John Fru Ndi subordonne sa participation, à ce double scrutin, à la fin de la crise dans les régions anglophones.

C’est par la voix de son Premier vice-président, le député Joshua Osih, que le SDF a renouvelé la menace de sa non-participation à ces élections, et ce en dépit du fait que le parti a déjà formellement investi ses candidats.

« Ce que nous demandons au gouvernement et rappelons au peuple camerounais, c’est que la seule personne qui a la responsabilité d’arrêter la guerre dans le Nord-Ouest et le Sud-Ouest, c’est le président Biya lui-même. Et ce que nous espérons, nous espérons du fond de notre cœur, c’est qu’il le fera avant ce 9 février. Et s’il ne le fait pas, nous serons dans l’impossibilité de participer à cette élection, parce que nous ne voulons pas que cet exercice se transforme dans un bain de sang », prévient Joshua Osih.

Un report des élections

Et dans l’hypothèse fort envisageable que la résolution de la crise à l’échéance du 9 février 2020 ne soit pas tenue, le SDF s’autorise quelques conseils à l’adresse du pouvoir, comme le précise le député : « Nous lui conseillons sincèrement d’envisager un report de ces élections pour permettre de revenir dans le processus de paix qui a été suspendu par la convocation du corps électoral ; processus qui, je peux le dire, a commencé, et dont le premier pas a été le grand dialogue national. »

Reste maintenant à savoir quelle réponse le pouvoir apportera à cette cascade de scepticisme et de réticence à la tenue de ces élections.

  2. Inability to lead leaves only one option – to follow.

    • My dear “con-citoyen”, this SDF decision is not hollow? lol
      And if SDF is not a leader or cannot lead, who are they following?
      Anyway, I will take any genuine gesture trying fixing the thorny NOSO dilemma.

  3. Besides wanting to succeed in fully assimilating SC, Biya, can never think of stopping
    his war. The so- call politician, have forgotten, that they are politicians because they /
    others exist. Meaning, that it is people first. This failure of thought, is why Biya / co,
    are killing in happiness. Going in for the elections, is not the best option for now. It
    is very inhuman.

  4. Follow MRC and let CPDM do their thing and win alone…come up cam down they must come out clear with how we will solve the Anglo problem, time for mago mago is over…Cabral and Paul Eric Kingué should stop wasting time with threats of boycotting should extra 15days for files to be completed be given. They should also include the solving of the NW/SW crisis in their boycott threats.

    Opposition should face reality, they have zero chance. Highest they can have is less than 10Mps, that cannot help CMR as no opposition law can ever be passed…

    • No accommodation for those asking 15 days prolongation Elecam body has concluded. So back to square one for cabral and Kingue. Would they be man or principled enough to follow the right pattern = not going for the election under the present conditions?
      My honest and sincere take is they should. But would they? I do not think so for 2 reasons: 1 Kingue wanted the 15 days but has indicated that he will participate whether or the 15 days are granted or not. 2 Cabral said he would consider his party participation it the 15 days were not granted but knowing Cabral, I am sure he will find an excuse to justify his participation.
      My take is if the SDF finally is a not goner (as MRC is already), it may and I say may be the “game starter” that may force the rdpc government to start thinking 4 real

  6. They should include that they are not going in for the elections, cause the AU, CW and
    Fc, are meddling and working with Biya / cpdm. This is the Biya regime, that had refused
    international calls for inclusive dialogue, saying what is happening is an internal issue and
    they can handle it. When pushed to the wall, Biya comes with tricks and extends his time
    and the killings etc of Cameroonians. We should not be surprised, that the Grand Master,
    is packing his luggage, to head to Cameroon. A new kind of trophy, is in the offering.
