Elections 2020: Monatélé at the center of a serious fight

This town is the object of the conquest of the CPDM which has controlled it for several decades and other political formations, including the PAL which will be led by its national president, Célestin Bedzigui, with in ambush, the FDC of Denis Emilien Atangana.

Will Monatélé, the capital of the Lékié department in the Center region, be able to relive the same suspense during the election of municipal councilors on February 9, as was already the case in 2013? Many players in this phase of the history of this town located on the banks of the Sanaga river, and which boasts of having regularly hosted the President of the Republic are still in place. Even if some have only changed sides. On the one hand, we will have the list of the Democratic Rally of the Cameroonian People (CPDM) which preferred as head of the list, our colleague Hugues François Onana, to the detriment of the one who held the reins of the city since 1996, André Tsala Messi who is remained a member of the list of his political party. Opposite, Denis Emilien Atangana. 

It is an understatement to say that the one who is now the national president of the Front of the Cameroonian Democrats (FDC) had given cold sweats to the CPDM which had finally won in 2013. The president of the FDC would then compete on behalf of a other political party. Even if he had to resign from it, for the Liberal Alliance Party (PAL), before finally creating in September 2018, the FDC.

However, if the CPDM is the one that continues to drive the destinies of this municipality, it will also have to face another adversary: ​​the Party of the Liberal Alliance (PAL) which is waged in this "battle" for control of Monatélé by its national president, Célestin Bedzigui. Here, observers are busy saying that the big “clan” families that make up this electoral district are the ones that will make the difference on the evening of February 9, 2020. We find the main ones both in the ranks of the CPDM, PAL and FDC.
