Cameroon: Government  budgets CFA50 billion for 2018 Elections

In the framework of the finalization of the draft budget, Cameroon’s government confirmed that it will hold political elections next year.

In this regard, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, general secretary at the presidency, sent a mail to his peer at the office of the prime minister, on November 20, 2017, to relay the directives of the president to “increase the budget for the elections from CFA35 billion to CFA50 billion”. However, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh did not reveal, in the mail, which of the elections to be held. According to the legislation however, there should be municipal, legislative and presidential elections in 2018.

This budget will be highly sufficient to fund the material organization of all these elections because, the government spent about CFA21 billion for the last presidential elections on October 9, 2011.This was financed thanks to the country’s own funds. Moreover, for the twin legislative and municipal elections which were to be held in 2011 and, were finally held on September 30, 2013, CFA12 billion were progressively disbursed by the ministry of finance. So, the total amount spent for the three elections was CFA33 billion.
