Section presidents from the various wings of the CPDM also took turns to call on party supporters to come out massively on February 9, 2020, and vote, in order to  ensure a comfortable majority for the party.

CPDM supporters were also advised by their Regional Head to skilfully carry out campaigns in their various areas, cover the entire media landscape and make use of modern communication modes.

‘‘Our party’s challenge is to have a comfortable majority in the National Assembly and in the councils’’ Peter Mafany added.

In his welcome address, the Section President for CPDM Fako III, Mafany David Namange, appealed for the consolidation of development endeavours by sympathisers of the South West region by voting the CPDM list for the Legislative and Municipal elections.
