Elections Re-run: MINAT Boss beckons on Population to Exercise Democracy through Votes



The Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Atanga Nji has called on the population to go to the polls and vote their different candidates to parliament and bring development to their communities.


He was speaking at upstation Bamenda on March 22nd, after the voting exercise conducted at the pools , where he voted alongside the Governor of the Northwest Region , Adolphe Lele LAfrique.

4 Divisions in the Northwest Region, Bui, Momo, Mezam and Menchum, affected by the decision taken by the Constitutional Council on February 25th, when the court ruled in favor of the appeal, tabled by the SDF.

In Bamenda, the elections re-run gave a general consciousness in the right to vote, though at the peril of the voter's life.


10 constituencies and 12 parliamentary seats clamoured for by the parliamentary Candidates, and
just like the build up to campaigns for February 9th elections, the process has been on a low key with few people seen on the streets, on the day of voting.

In the hope that new ideas will be pumped in the councils and parliament to tackle global challenges, the people were urged by the MINAT boss to defend their voting rights.


" Everything is going on smoothly as the Governor has given me a report of what is going on. Voting is a legitimate exercise,I think that President Paul Biya who convened the Electorate has respected the Constitution and the electoral agenda." MINAT Boss, Paul Atanga Nji

"Those voting are voting for the construction of the nation and I think it is important that at the end of the day, we remain republicans, the ballot boxes will decide the future of the elections and we should all stand by the verdict" he added.
