2018 Presidential: Elite(s) of the South Region Endorse Paul Biya

 The motion of support calling on President Biya to contest in the 2018 Presidential elections was published in Cameroon Tribune of January 12, 2016.

The motion of support which was signed by the elite of the region under the leadership of the Director of the Civil Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic, Martin Belinga Eboutou, hsd been described by political analysts as a well calculated move for encourage the Head of State for future elections. In what some politicians have described as another People’s Call, elite of the South Region declared their unconditional support and loyalty to President. Speculations as to whether President Biya will still contest in the upcoming Presidential election have come to null after this motion of support was made public.
Newspaper reports have also indicated that the call is an indication that "Paul Biya will contest in the next presidential election." After his New Year message to the nation on Dec. 31, 2015, observers were very vocal that Paul Biya had indirectly officially launched his campaign for the presidential election scheduled in two years. This is so because President Biya in that message made some important announcements such as: lower fuel prices, increase in family allowances for workers, creating 337,660 jobs in 2015 etc.
