The voices of the Cameroonian diaspora, estimated at about 18574 by Elections Cameroon (ELECAM), has no doubt caught the interest to date the six out of the nine candidates for the presidential election slated to take place on October 7, 2018.Paul Biya, outgoing Head of State and candidate for his own succession, will not be absent on the ground of the electoral campaign abroad.

Unlike his competitors Cabral Libii, Akere Muna, Maurice Kamto, Joshua Osih and Serge Espoir Matomba, who personally went to meet the Cameroonian diaspora to promote their respective candidacy, Paul Biya, National President of the Cameroon’s People Democratic Movement (CPDM), chose to delegate certain officials of his party to coordinate the activities of his election campaign abroad.

For example, former Minister of Arts and Culture Ama Tutu Muna will lead candidate Paul Biya’s campaign team to Britain and America (Brazil, Canada, United States of America and Great Britain); the former Director General of ENAM, Benoit Ndong Soumhet will coordinate the campaign of the outgoing President of the Republic in the Europe zone (Germany, Italy, Vatican City, Belgium, Spain, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands); Mouthar Ousmane Mey appointed head of mission in the West Africa zone (Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal and Chad) and Mama Njiemoun, member of the Central Committee of the ruling party will visit the Central Africa zone (Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and South Africa) for candidate Biya’s campaign.

Thus, of all the nine presidential candidates of October 7, 2018, only Garga Haman Adji, Adamou Ndam Njoya and Pastor Ndifor Franklin Afanwi are absent in this great unprecedented offensive for the harvest of the voices of the Cameroonian diaspora, estimated in 18574 by Elections Cameroon.

It should be recalled that it was on the 13th of July 2011that the president of the republic, Paul Biya promulgated a law granting voting rights to Cameroonian residents abroad during presidential elections and referendums. This decision only comes to show how transparent President Biya is for the wellbeing of Cameroonians. This decision no doubt was saluted and as well bringing satisfaction to Cameroonians living abroad who had to travel back to Cameroon in order to exercise their civic right.
