Senatorial Elections: North West CPDM Launches Campaigns

The Regional Campaign Commission of the ruling CPDM Party has officially launched campaigns of the March 12th Senatorial Elections.

Speaking in Bamenda, the Regional Campaign chair, Prime Minister Emeritus, Philemon Yang enjoined the Municipal and Regional councillors to give back to the party by ensuring that they vote the CPDM list.

Philemon Yang called for the strict respect of the electoral laws of the country and the internal organisational text from the Secretary General of the CPDM Central Committee.

"The campaigns must be methodical and void of improvisation. Municipal and Regional Councillors are part of the campaign teams and should facilitate the work of team heads.

"You must respect the guidelines of the CPDM and avoid any form of provocation. Be optimistic and determined so we emerge victorious on the March 12. Act peacefully anywhere you find yourself." Philemon Yang told the members of the electoral college.

The campaign leader just like the Section President of Mezam IB, Cletus Anye Matoyah notes that it is not time for any complacency as no election is won before hand.

Cletus Anye Matoyah called on the various campaign teams to burn the midnight candle, talk to all the councillors so no one feels left behind.

This is in accordance with a circular from the National President of the CPDM, Paul Biya, who has instructed that the Divisional Campaign heads should ensure that voters make it to the polling station on polling day in one piece.

Aspiring CPDM Senators

The party hierarchy in the region reminded the councillors that "the respective titles and positions you have today is the making of the party and it will be unwise for the party to invest you as candidates and others voted for you, just for you not to vote for the party's candidates," Philemon Yang highlighted.

On the part of the candidates, he cautioned that "The North West list is that of the CPDM and not that of individuals." He notes that they must work together and shun unnecessary utterances.

The CPDM list for the North West region is led by Emma Lafon from Bui. Senator Emma Lafon is seeking to re-enter the Senate after being a Senator from 2013 to 2018. In her second attempt to enter the Senate, their list lost to the SDF party in 2018.

Being the Secretary General of the WCPDM party at the National level, Emma Lafon brings in a lot of experience and is the only previous Senator of the CPDM vying for a seat at the upper House. She counts 30+ years as a militant of the CPDM.

The CPDM aspiring senators are Ngafesson Emmanuel, Dr. Mrs Neba Ndosiri Bridget, Kobenge Bomeh, Enwe Francis, Fointama Hilda, Mbufong Carl Moses.

The campaigns will run till midnight of Saturday 11th March 2023 while voting will take place only at Divisional Headquarters.
