Leaders of various opposition political parties met in Yaounde on Thursday, April 1 to form a coalition and working group to press for electoral reforms.
Involved in the working group were; Maurice Kamto (CRM), Cabral Libii(PCRN), Pierre Kwemo (UMS), Tomaino Ndam Njoya (CDU), Prince Ekosso (USDP), Joshua Osih (SDF).
The leaders said they have created a platform to establish a new or amended electoral code to guarantee free and fair elections and the stability and prosperity of Cameroon.
They have thus called on leaders of other opposition political parties, the civil society as well as other organisations that wish to make proposals to submit them to the technical secretariat of the working group. The latest date for the reception of proposals is April 15, the coalition said.
This development comes just weeks after a memo, from the Director of the elections management body, Elecam, calling on all regional heads to submit proposals for a possible amendmnt of the electoral code, surfaced online.
