Cameroon – Government reshuffle

The newly re-elected president of Cameroon, Paul Biya, has reshuffled his government. There is a report in English here.

The prime minister, Philémon Yang, has been reappointed. However, two aspects are noteworthy. The first is that there is some dissatisfaction that President Biya has not included representatives of certain opposition parties in the government. The second is that the size of the government has been increased from 62 to 72 ministers! Given the absence of the opposition ministers, the increase in size is even more remarkable.
