President Biya, 85, who has uninterruptedly ruled Cameroon since 1982, is yet to say whether he will seek another mandate, but his supporters and members of his governing CPDM party were already declaring him winner of the poll.

“President Paul Biya is our [CPDM] candidate for the October 7 election and with him we are going to win,” said Prof Jacques Fame Ndongo, the Higher Education minister and the CPDM Communication Secretary.

The leading opposition party, the Social Democratic Front (SDF) of Mr John Fru Ndi has already designated the 49-year-old Joshua Osih as its flag bearer.

Other candidates who have declared their intention to unseat President Biya include prominent lawyer and former president of Transparency International, Mr Akere Muna, and Prof Maurice Kamto, a former loyalist of the veteran leader and current president of the Cameroon Renaissance Movement (MRC) party.

At least 500 Somalis in the United States with Temporary Protected Status will be able to re-register for an extension of their status through March 17, 2020, according to a Thursday statement from the Department of Homeland Security.
