After fighting hard to defend the CRM’s post electoral litigations, Barrister Akere Muna says the future of the country now hangs on the balance.

He made the remark on Twitter few minutes after, the petitions was discarded by the council as unfounded.

Akere says Cameroon’s institutions are not prepared for change. To him, the electoral process in Cameroon is not a process at all.

“It is a script played out by actors; some of good faith and others fully initiated in the scam.The future of our country now hangs in a balance. But there is hope.Always.”

The council also rejected the petition of the candidate of the SDF, Joshua Osih. According to the verdict on Osih’s case, the complain on the violation of fundamental human rights to vote in the North West and South West regions was discarded by the council as unfounded because it was established that voting took place in both regions with 5.5% and 15% participation rate  in the North West and South West Regions respectively .

On the low participation of voters in the election, the Constitutional Council ruled that it did not have any incident on the results obtained by the candidate in the elections.

The examination of post election petitions at the Constitutional Council ended at about 2:30 am this Friday 19th October 2018.

As expected, all 19 petitions have been rejected and the council is poised to proclaim the winner of the October 7 Presidential poll, in the hours ahead.
