Cameroon: Guest What’s The Percentage Of Voters’ Cards Distribution BY ELECAM

ELECAM Boss Rates Voters’ Cards Distribution At 40 Percent

Elections Cameroon, ELECAM Board Chair, Dr. Samuel Fonkam Azu’u, has rated the national distribution of voters’ cards at 40 percent. The ELECAM Chair disclosed the information, while assessing the level of distribution of voters’ cards with a 17-man team that went down to the field recently to evaluate the level of distribution.

Dr Fonkam Azu’u Chairman of the Board of Elections Cameroon (Elecam) rates voters’ cards distribution at 40%.

Speaking to the press in Bamenda, at the Regional Delegation of ELECAM, Fonkam Azu’u announced that the purpose of his tour was to ensure proper distribution of the cards and to check on the application files of those to run for the September 30, 2013 elections. The ELECAM boss said the level of distribution of cards in the Northwest stood at 57 percent.

He appreciated all stakeholders who he said have engaged in the process for the common good of all Cameroonians. He also praised the cordial relationship existing between political stakeholders and ELECAM, especially at the various levels of elections in the country. Talking to The Post, Fonkam Azu’u said ELECAM has dispatched mobile teams to the field to ensure Cameroonians get their cards before the day of the elections.

“Power of attorney is not permitted for another person to collect some other person’s card,” he remarked. As concerns the September 30 elections, he said ELECAM must scrutinise candidates from political parties and make sure they are in conformity with the law in force. While answering a question on gender, the President said ELECAM does not sanction gender, but they do to political parties.

Meantime, he called on all to put hands on deck to ensure a 100 percent success rate of distribution of voters’ cards. He also urged partners to exchange ideas, and was quick to say those who registered late would have their cards soonest. He disclosed that the same exercise he was undertaking in the Northwest will continue to the Western Region. The field trip took place after ELECAM held its fourth Consultation Forum in Yaoundé recently.
