The organization of the Senate elections is just one of President Biya’s delaying tactics to stay in power. To me these elections were not necessary at this moment. People were eager to register on the voter register thinking that there would be council and parliamentary elections soon, but when this was not the case you saw how people were disappointed and refused to go register. To me it is a step behind in the country’s democratic process.

What has that got to do with me? Senate or no senate what will change in Cameroon? Paul Biya is still there. What have the parliamentarian done? Those elected are just going to eat fat.

Cameroonians should give the Senate a chance. It is a new organ and until it goes operational then can one give a proper judgment. So I think it was a good decision to call for Senate elections after a long wait.

People come and go but state institutions continue. So I don’t understand why Cameroonians see negative in any initiative taken by President Paul Biya. To me in spite of some loopholes surrounding the organization of these elections it is going to be another experience, so I welcome it.

Elections in Cameroon have become a joke. So the senate election to me is just a political game. Have you seen Cameroonians showing any concern on what is going on? Our politicians have disappointed us. Both government and opposition, so what is my interest in an election whose results are evident? Even when we vote in other elections it is rigged, so I don’t care.
