U. S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Tibor Peter Nagy has reaffirmed U. S. commitment to democracy and peaceful elections in Cameroon, a month before the twin elections in the Central African Country.
Tibor Nagy has equally said the U.S. supports the Swiss initiative in Cameroon as a solution for the socio-political crisis in the country.
The official reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to Cameroon after meeting Thursday with the National President of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement party (MRC), Prof Maurice Kamto, who is visiting the U.S. to meet Cameroonians living in the diaspora and other MRC party militants.
Kamto’s political tour in the U. S. is holding at a time when other political parties in Cameroon are getting set for the Legislative and Municipal elections back home.
In November, a few days to the deadline for submission of candidacy papers, the MRC party announced its non-participation in the twin polls citing the escalating crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon and the electoral code as reasons for its boycott.
