The National Communication Secretary of the Social Democratic Front, Denis Kemlemo, has announced an ordinary session of the National Executive Committee of the so-called main opposition party in Cameroon. The meeting will hold in Yaoundé, the nation’s capital on March 25th 2017. The Yaoundé NEC meeting comes after that of Bamenda that took place on January 28, 2017.
Denis Kemlemo did not provide any particular reason for the holding of a NEC meeting in Yaoundé. But other SDF sources say the fact that all MPs and the Senators are currently in Yaoundé obliges the party to hold the NEC forum in Yaoundé. Although the agenda is not yet known, it is a well-established fact that the meeting will be to prepare for the next elections.
According to Denis Kemlemo, the commissions that were set up during the last NEC are functioning and are presently working on the reports that will be presented on March 25th. The different regional presidents will submit to the Secretary General of the SDF the results from the primaries of their respective regions. These lists are important not only for the NEC nominations but also for the scheduling of the delegations that will participate in the next party convention to take place on the 28, 29 and 30 of April 2017 in Bamenda. It should be said that the elective convention of the SDF is planned for the month of April 2017.
