ELECAM officials enhance capacity ahead of Cameroon’s Presidential polls
Arthene Kwessi Selaeodai Ahooney-zena, head of the AU observer mission, says no major incidents were observed that could influence the results, even though there were reports of fighting in the restive English-speaking regions. He says the AU did not send observers to those regions, but monitored from a distance. Cameroonian authorities reported that a priest and three separatists were killed a day before the election in the country’s Anglophone region in clashes with security forces.
Anglophone separatists want autonomous rule from the government in Yaounde and had vowed on social media to prevent Sunday’s election. With security high in Cameroon’s English-speaking northwest and southwest, the separatists were unable to carry out their threat. Businessman Desmund Abefuh, from the English-speaking town of Bamenda, says he voted despite the threat, and is anxious to know the results.
President Paul Biya has ruled Cameroon for 36 years and is expected to win another seven-year term.

Cameroon’s fractured opposition was unable to rally behind a strong challenger to the year-old leader. Muna says he was shocked to find his ballot papers in polling stations when he had written to request ELECAM wlecam withdraw them. He alleges such acts are to facilitate fraud and can have serious consequences. However, ELECAM says Muna gave them only one day’s notice before the vote, so there was not enough time to withdraw his name from ballots in all 25, polling stations.
Territorial administration minister Paul Atanga Nji says it is a crime to speculate on election results before they become official.
Despite threats from separatists, Biya’s party campaigned in the northwest over the weekend under heavy security. All eight of his opposition challengers either avoided the two English-speaking regions or were chased out. Anglophone separatists began a violent campaign in northwest and southwest Cameroon one year ago, citing alleged discrimination and oppression by the country’s French-speaking majority.
