 Will Cameroon's elections be viable?

Cameroon's President Paul Biya 
Cameroon is scheduled to hold presidential elections on the 9th of October. Voter registration has just ended and Sunday is the deadline for candidates to submit their nominations. 

But, with President Paul Biya, who has been in power for almost 30 years, seeking re-election, and some of the highest levels of corruption in the world, will these elections be any more credible than previous ones have been?

Are you planning to vote in the Cameroonian elections? If so, do you have confidence in the electoral system? If not, why?

For the first time Cameroonians in the diaspora are permitted to vote: if you are one of them get in touch and have your say.

If you would like to debate this topic LIVE on air on Wednesday 31 August at 1600 GMT, please include a telephone number. It will not be published.
