The first opposition party in Cameroon on Monday denounced fraud in the presidential election held the day before and that should give a new mandate to Paul Biya.
"Our lawyers are already to gather evidence to show that there has been fraud everywhere," he told Reuters Tamajong Elizabeth, Secretary General of the Social Democratic Front (SDF).
Paul Biya, in power continuously since 1982, acknowledged that some "imperfections" may have occurred but denied any fraud.
According to election observers, the voting took place without major incident. There were occasionally delays and irregularities in the queues in particular.
The outcome of the election should not be known for several days, the electoral commission is not allowed to broadcast partial results.
There is currently no official figures but the participation of Cameroonians, many indifferent due to lack of challenge of the consultation, did not seem eager to polling stations in Yaounde, the capital. (Reuters)
