Cameroon's Electoral Boday (ELECAM): The elephant in the room

One of the dirtiest wounds Cameroon can't hide any longer is the dishonesty of its election management body, Elecam.
Elections Cameroon is supposed to ensure fair and free elections in Cameroon.
Of course that's true,   depending on where you stand.
One issue about Elecam caught my attention on Wednesday when some newly appointed members of the corrupt body were taking oath of office.
They were warned that they would be judged negatively or positively based on how they did their job.

What they meant by negative and positive judgment is what I don't seem to understand.
In normal circumstances, these guys ought to organize free and fair elections indeed.
But unfortunately, they have to dance to the rhythm of Biya's dictatorship.
Elecam is managed and run by Paul Biya.
I wonder how  these guys would not favour Biya in every election, given that he who pays the    piper calls the tune.
Paul Biya has been in power for over three decades and is certainly set to seek reelection in next year's presidential election.
