The President of Cameroon, Paul Biya, signed a decree this Monday setting December 6 as the date for the first regional elections in the conflict in the English-speaking world, as the President himself confirmed through his report in the social network Twitter.
“The electoral colleges will be called to the capital of each department on Sunday 6 December 2020 to proceed with the election of regional councils,” he said in a message posted on his account in French.
“Today I signed a decree convening electoral colleges for the election of regional councils,” he said in a second English message along with the text of the decree that the vote will take place between 8:00 and 18:00. (Local time).
Buya approved a decree last week setting the number of representatives to be elected by each region at 90, who will come from among the ranks of the division delegates and representatives of the traditional leaders. The main opposition parties have already announced a boycott.
