National Assembly: Constitutional laws committee examining the ground breaking bill on decentralization

Cameroon is about to take a major leap in its decentralization process.

The bill on regional elections is expected to completely transform the political and administrative structure of the country as it will give more autonomy to regions and councils.

If the bill goes through, regions will be managed by a council of 90 members.

The regional councillors are of two categories, 70 delegates drawn from all the divisions and 20 representatives of traditional rulers essentially first or second class chiefs.

The draft bill is also the second phase of the decentralisation process stipulated in the 18 January 1996 constitution.

The constitutional laws committee is currently examining the bill which many see as a turning point in the democratic and decentralization process.
