CPDM crime syndicate ‘heading into trouble’ in election
The ruling CPDM crime syndicate is reportedly struggling to find consensus in the selection of candidates for the 2018 senatorial elections to be held on the 25th of March, Cameroon Intelligence Report has learned from a well-placed source in Yaoundé.
We gathered that Cavaye Yegué Djibril, President of the National Assembly and Permanent Delegate of the Central Committee for the Far North Region braved the bad roads to his region of origin but was unable to secure a consensus list.
The divisional delegations of the ruling party throughout the national territory have not been able to make public a single candidate and representative of their constituencies according to the instructions of the hierarchy. Many of the CPDM corrupt barons have channeled two lists to the Central Committee to be decided in Yaoundé.
Our source also hinted that the Far-North will as a consequence present two lists of 7 candidacies to the senatorial of March 25, 2018. To this must be added 3 other lists, although recalibrated at the regional level, which will be debated by the central committee.
We understand that negotiations are taking place right now to find consensus among the various candidates. At the end of these negotiations, the list of the selected candidates will be communicated.
Divergences have been observed in the Central, Eastern, and Western including Southern Cameroons where the party is now operating underground. These divisions are definitely sounding the death knell of conservatives in the presidential camp and the end of President Biya. The reason for all this is that today the ruling CPDM party is witnessing the birth of new leaders who are all aspiring to govern.
