1. Cameroon elects, on a national level, a head of state – the president – and a legislature. The president is elected for a seven-year term by the people; a two-term limit on the office was removed through a parliamentary vote in April 2008.[1]The National Assembly (Assemblée Nationale) has 180 members, elected for a five-year term in 49 single and multi-seat constituencies.

2. Cameroon is a one party dominant state with the Cameroon People's Democratic Movement in power. Opposition parties are allowed but are widely considered to have no real chance of gaining power.
