Cameroon’s two houses of parliament – the National Assembly and the Senate – resume business on Tuesday after four months of recess for the third ordinary and last session of the 2019.
The session is dedicated to scrutiny and adoption of the state budget for 2020 and comes after the so-called Major National Dialogue that was aimed at resolving the conflict in Southern Cameroons-Ambazonia.
Some of the recommendations of that dialogue, especially those requiring more resources for Southern Cameroons will be tabled in the Francophone dominated parliament for vetting.
The parliament has served for six years after President Paul Biya extended it twice because of tensions in the country but the elections are now set for February 9, 2020.
