The Ambazonia Elections 2022 has been plagued by failures to address pre-poll challenges contrary even to the current Election Modalities, Ambazonia News understands from sources close to the deliberations.
The incumbent president raised concerns about lack of consultation, the inadequacy of some provisions and the failure initially to properly present the modalities to the Constituents Assembly or get the signature of the president before publication as a law.
Calls for these issues to be addressed were not heeded even with an acknowledgement of receipt. Instead a minority of members of the Restoration Council engaged in a campaign of intimidation labelling the challenges sabotage.
The president duly convened a Constituents General Assembly of the Ambazonia Peace Plan on Saturday 3 September 2022 to address her concerns as time runs out on a consensual resolution ahead of the poll.
After hearing from several speakers, including the key contributor to the framework for the Election Modalities and county Chairs who outlined shortcomings in the operation of the Election Commission of Ambazonia, the assembly passed several resolutions to ask the IG to regularize the document. The expert testimony confirmed that the widespread concerns about the ECA operation were a moot point as the Election Modalities could not be operational without having been signed into law by the executive.
