The African Movement for a new independence popularly known in its french accronym as Manidem has declared it , will not take part at the presidential election scheduled for October 7, 2018.
During a press conference organised at the party’s head office in Bonadibong, Douala on Tuesday, the party described the prevailing situation in the North West and South West Regions as not favorable for elections to hold in the country.
According to the political bureau of the Manidem led by Anicet Ekane, elections are supposed to be a period for all Cameroonians to decide the destiny of the country but the present dispensation marked by the anglophone crisis does not give the opportunity for every all Cameroonians to express themselves.
The party also said the plethora of candidates without any political agenda does not make good reading for the country.
“With the present dispensation, the intentions, motivations, objectives of most candidates, it does not encourage us to get into this mess,”said Anicet Ekane who was Manidem’s candidate at the 2011 Presidential election.
He however said the Manidem party will use the campaign period to sensitize Cameroonians on the economic hardship, threats on national unity, misery and poverty.
Under the banner of the Pan African Progressive Front (composed of Manidem and Moci), Anicet Ekane unveiled a 15-point plan which they intend to roll forward to Cameroonians in the weeks ahead.
