The Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul ATANGA NJI has said government funding of the presidential campaign in Cameroon will strictly follow provisions of the Law.
The Minister of Territorial Administration cited Sections 28; 284, 285 of the electoral code.
He spoke in a press briefing after some opposition candidates running for the race said the disbursed funds were insufficient to sponsor campaign activities.
The CPDM, SDF and UNIVERS parties are said to have collected the first phase of the public campaign funds already.
Reacting to the amount disbursed for campaign activities, supporters of the PFD of Akere Muna said it is a slap on their face.
“We consider it both a provocation and an insult Considering that billions have been budgeted for this election..Considering that ELECAM has rejected proposals ofsingle ballot system..Considering that the outgoing candidate is in control of public treasury and all the logistics of the State of Cameroon,…” Alice Sadio, SG of the platform for the New Republic in support of the candidate Akere T. Muna reacted.
