The news magazine whose publisher is the Director of the Civil Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic, Minister Samuel Mvondo Ayolo sums up that democracy in Cameroon has developed over three decades and still has a brighter future, “because it has a spirit which is the law, a soul which is the people, and a wise Architect who is the President of the Republic.” Describing President Paul Biya as the architect of Cameroon’s democracy, the news magazine said, he facilitated the advent of democracy because he saw it as an opportunity and a historical contingency for his people. President Biya unlike some of his peers in the region, it is said, did not refuse the idea of letting the national political scene and life evolve. The personality of President Biya, the magazine states, is a determinant of Cameroon’s democratic process. He has virtues of openness, listening, consensus, peace and conciliation which are assets and proven predispositions for a successful democratic process in Cameroon. “Democracy in Cameroon owes more to the vision of President Paul Biya than the twists and turns of history,” it is stated in the the news magazine.
