Manifesto of Candidates of the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement on Legislative and Municipal Elections of 9 February 2020

Dear Voters,

On 9 February 2020, on the occasion of the twin legislative and municipal elections, the people of Cameroon are called upon to choose their representatives in the National Assembly and in the Municipal Councils for the next five years.

As in the past, the elections will be conducted under a free and fair, democratic and transparent atmosphere. Each Cameroonian, registered on the electoral lists will have to vote according to his or her conscience and political convictions. Together, through our votes, we will write a new page in the challenging process of strengthening democracy in our country.

On the occasion of these elections, the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement has endorsed candidates in all legislative constituencies and municipalities. Its main objective is to reinforce the majorities that the party holds in the National Assembly as well as in the Municipal Councils, in order to ensure the peaceful continuation of the implementation of the economic, political and social programmes so happily initiated by President Paul BIYA, since his brilliant and indisputable re-election at the Helm of the State on 7 October 2018.

As a matter of fact, the institutional stability and harmonious development of our country stem from the concordance between the presidential majority and the parliamentary and municipal majorities.

  • The CPDM is the only political party that is committed to and stands resolutely close to the populations, without preference for locality, in their quest  for well-being and in their desire to increasingly claim ownership and better define their destiny.
  1. 10 Main benefits of the CPDM lists.

Be it in the legislative or municipal elections, the lists endorsed by the CPDM are exceptionally beneficial in the following ways:

  1. they are the grassroots’ choice;
  2. they reflect the diversity and unity of our country in all constituencies and municipalities;
  3. they are perfectly balanced and shaped in accordance with the requirements of the electoral code;
  4. they ensure the emergence of new figures in the national political class;
  5. they substantially strengthen the role and responsibilities of women, youth and minorities in the conduct of public affairs;
