CPDM Guns Cream of the Crop

21 février 2018

It’s game time and the ruling party intends to play its choicest cards to make the most of it.

When the President of the Republic convened the Electoral College for the senatorial elections slated for 25 March 2018, players on the political game board realized the time had come to have a peep at their cards and know which ones to use at what time. Just like a game of cards, it is that instance when the CPDM looks amongst its militants to pick out those who can better represent it in such grand arenas as the Senate. It is thus no joking matter when the National President of the CPDM, Paul Biya in his circular stressed that “the CPDM will have to field candidates worthy of senatorial stakes in all electoral constituencies.” By this he implied “women and men of substance and integrity, with extensive experience, resolutely committed, faithful, loyal, representative, credible and able to contribute with competence and abnegation to the accomplishment of the missions of the Senate.


So far, serious work has been done at the level of the regional delegations temporally transformed as Reception, Analysis and Evaluation commissions to aid in forwarding lists of hopefuls. It is now that the much talked of political maturity of the militants is being judged as choices made may not always favour all but which according to the powers that be safeguard the interests of the Party. The nominations conducted within the CPDM may just be a way of picking the fine corn from the chaff at a time when there is need to strike a balance amongst the plethora of criteria for top notch candidates.


Talking of experience, even though the adage of “what an old man can see while sitting...” still holds water, it is true that the young have been keen and have washed their hands to join the elders at table. As senators on the CPDM ticket, resolute commitment and loyalty are a prerequisite which for sure were used in the choice bid. For sure, the criterion of being up to date in paying dues and one’s service to the party would be considered while choosing people. While the CPDM continues to support government action in consolidating the country’s democratic system, it is for certain that it will not relent efforts in making the right choices of people worth the salt to carry on the missions of the august house.

Amongst the many things the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement has on its to-do list, is readying the terrain for the legislative and municipal elections slated to hold this year.

As the ruling party, the CPDM shone by its achievements in 2018, the most glaring being the overwhelming victory of its candidate Paul Biya at the presidential elections. It didn’t take a day’s work for such an outcome. In fact, the Party invested adequate time and resources to galvanise its militants towards a favourable ending. In the congratulatory speech read by Jean Nkuété, Secretary General of the Central Committee when the results of the elections were proclaimed by the Constitutional Council, he acknowledged the unalloyed support of the militants, the commitment to see the goals set by the Party attained as reasons for the victory the Party was recording. It was in this light that he beckoned militants to remain loyal and unswerving in lending their support to the Head of State in his quest to consolidate peace and unity and foster the growth of the nation.
It is in the same spirit that the Party’s hierarchy has begun laying ground work for the twin elections expected this year. The maturity of Cameroonians during the October 7 elections as saluted by many observers is telling of the growing interest the population is showing in this regard. This explains why the CPDM is setting out early on the journey, tending an ear to its militants and meting out advice on the animation of the Party in the grassroots. Cognizant of the stakes this year, the Party is ready as always to cede to Elecam’s call to attain 10million registered voters by massively sensitizing its militants on the field. 
Thanks to the various statutory meetings to be held by the sections and subsections as provided for by the Basic Texts of the Party, the hierarchy is intent on making everyone of them count. So far, many sections have been meeting to draw their roadmaps for the year, bearing in mind that the terrain is not as smooth with several political parties seeking places at the National Assembly and in the various councils. According to Jean Nkuété, in renewing their confidence in Paul Biya, Cameroonians are expecting him to manage the affairs of the state in a manner that would favour the common man. This is thus a call for militants to contribute each in their capacities in accomplishing the tasks set to keep the coals of the party alive, for as the SG said, during the National President’s new mandate, the CPDM ought to be better Paul Biya’s most sure rear guard.
