November 8, 2011 § Leave a comment
Paul Biya has been re-elected for another 7-year-term as President of Cameroon, according results published by the Supreme Court (sitting in lieu of the Constitutional Council) on Friday 21 Oct 2011. He won 77.98 percent of the votes cast.
After the proclamation of the results, George Ewane, the correspondent who covers presidential affairs for the country’s government-run broadcaster (CRTV), analysed the electoral process for viewers of the national newscast (see video below).
He spoke about the transparency of the poll and the “Yaounde Declaration” by seven opposition candidates who want the poll to be annulled.Vodpod videos no longer available.
