Senatorial Elections
Central Committee Hums

21 février 2018

The hustle and bustle is on as CPDM candidate’s files for the Senatorial election undergo scrutiny to avoid errors of the past.

Last weekend was quite a hectic one at the Central Committee of the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement. Friday February 16, 2018 was an unusually busy day at the CPDM Party seat as it was the deadline for all the lists of candidates vying for places at the august House from the ten regions to be deposited. The parking lot of the premise was particularly full as cars drove in and out, bringing persons concerned with depositing the files. Even the security was uptight taking into consideration the circumstances and it was even evident that the police officers usually on post had received new directives concerning the situation at hand. Systematic checks and thorough questioning were stepped up, giving the compound a different aura.


A makeshift office equipped with chairs and tables had been setup, to accommodate the special team of verifiers put in place by the Party to ensure that the documents received from the regional Reception, Analysis and Evaluation Commissions were in order and in conformity with the law. Partitioned according to the ten regions from the Adamawa to the South West Region, the tables had a range of two to three persons charged with perusing through the documents, paying attention to every detail. First to arrive was the delegation from the South West region, headed by Peter Mafany Musonge accompanied by the Chargé de mission. Like the procedure stipulated, they were received and their package comprising of the commission’s report and lists checked and confirmed. Formalities completed, the head of the South west regional commission headed out bearing a copy of the deposit form to attest. 


From then on, the buzz in the office increased as the various chargés de mission kept filing in to deposit their files which according to our sources ranged from two to five. This reporter observed the camaraderie amongst the verifiers who ensured that the documents compiled by the various candidates were valid and signed by the competent authorities. The arrival of the lists from the Littoral region in the wee hours of Friday confirmed the determination of respecting deadlines. It is worth noting that contrary to what public opinion may holds, the aim of the crosschecking is to avoid leaving anything to chance. As a matter of fact, the meticulous job as seen performed by those in charge of combing through the files has always been one of the Party’s strong points. Up till press time this Tuesday February 20, candidates kept coming in with supplementary documents to complete their files or change those which were not in conformity.

Ahead of planned CPDM regional seminars, it is difficult not to think of the importance of these trainings meant for militants at a time when their commitment to the party is tested by the current situation.

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.
