Robert Jackson, the United States (US) Ambassador in Cameroon, stated in a declaration made public by AFP [1] [fr] that US observers of the October 9, 2011, presidential election noted “irregularities at every level” of the electoral process, and “technical difficulties by Elecam [Cameroonian Electoral Commission] in its management of the election”. This follows the decision by the Cameroonian Constitutionnal Court [2] [fr] to dismiss an appeal by opposition candidates to annul the election.
