“The full exercise of executive power in the country requires a good majority in the National Assembly and a hold on a good majority of councils”, Senator Musonge noted.
In 2011“the whole country elected our candidate, H.E Paul Biya, National President of our Party, with an overwhelming majority on the basis of his policy of “Major Accomplishments”, he said, before insisting, “It is of prime importance that we give the President of the Republic a comfortable in the National Assembly to enable him implement his political agenda…The same holds true for the municipal election.”
He said the “success of the ‘Major Accomplishments’ policy depends on the support of the grass-roots, its ownership and enrichment in our city and town councils”, adding that the councils need a good CPDM majorities to uphold the ideals of peace, unity and progress at local level.
Senator Musonge noted that the twin elections constitute an opportunity to consolidate the victory achieved in the last Presidential election of October 2011.
