It is now official that Marcel Niat Njifenji will retain his post as the president of the Senate in Cameroon for the next five years.
The son of the West Region, is serving his second mandate on that post, an outcome which became a reality after he won 89 votes out of 96 on 4 May 2018. The 7 SDF Senators opted for empty ballots.
Senator Marcel Niat was first elected president of the senate in 2013, the time the Cameroon upper house of the parliament just came into existence.
Immediately after his voting on Friday, he took his seat of the president of the senate and the election of the other members continued.
The election of another key personality was that of the CPDM Senator from the North, his majesty Aboubakary Abdoulaye, as first vice president of the senate. He had 90 votes out of 97.
