The National Alliance for Democracy and Progress, NADP has thrown its back to the Head of State and candidate of the ruling CPDM party at the upcoming Presidetial election billed for October 7.
The party reached the decision on Monday during an executive committee meeting in Yaounde presided over by the National Chairman Hamadou Moustapha.
The main order of the day was to reveal the party’s choice for the election which they revealed it is the CPDM’s Paul Biya.
In a final communiqué after meeting, the party justified its choice by giving a glowing assessment of Paul Biya’s mandate. Amongst some of the achievements they said is the ability of the Head of State to consolidate peace and living together, the economic stability of the nation, the construction of various road and energy infrastructure, as well as the creation of hospitals and universities.
The National Alliance for Democracy and Progress believes all these strides are enough for them to accompany the Head of State for another mandate in order to complete other projects he has started.
This is the latest opposition party to rally behind the Head of State after 20 other opposition parties came together on Friday to throw their weight behind the CPDM’s candidate.
This came just hours after the elections management body Elecam announced it had registered the applications of 28 candidates to run for the Presidential elections.
Elecam has until August 8 to publish the final list of candidates to run for the election.
