Maurice Kamto’s campaign chief Paul-Eric Kingue has called on party supporters to “fiercely resist” rigging, AFP has said.
Paul Eric Kingue was speaking during a press briefing today in Yaounde ahead of Cameroon’s October 7 polls.
According to Kingue, a “massive fraud” is underway to ensure the country’s sitting president, Paul Biya, wins a seventh term.”We won’t accept any result if this kind of fraud continues,” Kingue told reporters .
The campaign chief of Kamto’s Cameroon’s Rennaisance Movement (CRM), alleged that polling cards have been forged and that voter registration has been allowed to continue despite the process being officially closed.
“In 62 percent of areas, the (ruling) Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement party is still adding names to the voter roll,” said Kingue.
“But this year, 2018, will not be like 2011,” he vowed.
In the most recent presidential elections in that year, President Paul Biya won a sixth term in office with 78 percent of votes in polls the opposition and observers accused of being flawed.
