Advocates of an opposition coalition might have to wait longer for the Prof. Maurice Kamto and Barrister Akere Muna to decide whether answer to their call.
Both legal minds of international repute are still discussing the terms of the coalition.
One of the Coordinators of Now Movement, Joseph Lea Ngoula told Equinoxe Radio that negotiations are still ongoing.”We have gone a long way in the discussions, but no deal is sealed yet.”he is quoted to have said.
Supporters of opposition candidates hold that only a strong coalition grouping the 8 contenders can unseat incumbent Paul Biya.
“If general interest surpasses personal ego, the opposition should unite to bring change…” Albert Elimbi Lobe maintained.
Within the ranks of the CPDM, militants seem unmoved by the call for coalition.
CPDM’s deputy Secretary General of the Central Committee, Gregoire Owona declared that even an alliance of the 8 opposition parties cannot challenge the Biya regime.
Could there be surprises in the coming hours?
Only time will tell!
