Elections Cameroon has made known the list of results obtained in the 360 Councils in the September 30, 2013 municipal elections classifying the score for each political party.
As political parties preparing to run for seats in the senatorial election of March 25, 2018, finalise the list of candidates to submit to Elections Cameroon (ELECAM), they very well master their potential electors.
The presidential decree convening electors to the polls indicate that the electoral college is essentially the municipal councillors voted during the September 30, 2013 council election.
The elections organising institution, ELECAM is updating the electoral list for the election of senators by deleting the names of municipal councillors elected in September 30, 2013 who have already died and those who have lost their voting rights following the provisions of the Electoral Code.
The same ELECAM has detailed results of the 2013 municipal election that already enable the political parties preparing to participate in the election to measure their winning chances in each region that constitutes a constituency for the 70 elected Senators.
