Jean Tsomelou replaces Senator Elizabeth Tamajong who resigned in February 2015.
Jean Tsomelou, current president of the parliamentary group of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) in the Senate, is the new Secretary General of the political party. His appointment, according to the daily Le Jour edition of January 12, 2016, took place yesterday. According to the newspaper, Ni Fru Ndi, the Chairman of the SDF, hailed his management of the crisis that shook the party during the operations of renewal of the party organs in the Littoral. “They were struggling to run normally and a lot of tension surrounded them for many months,” the paper writes.
The daily stresses that Jean Tsomelou is the very first Francophone expression SG of the SDF. “That is to say the level of esteem that he was able to reach with the leader of the party,” it writes. It should be remembered that he is replacing Senator Elizabeth Tamajong. She resigned in February 2015.
La Nouvelle Expression in its February 15, 2015 issue reported that in her letter of resignation she regretted having had a much more figurative role during her nine years in this position. Yet it was she who took care of the current affairs of the main political formation of the opposition in Cameroon.
“Elizabeth Tamajong expressly offended herself by not having had enough of the support of the Chairman Ni John Fru Ndi when she was the victim of various attacks both inside and outside the party. Accordingly, she fulminated that she had never been closely or distantly involved in the consultations for distributing the posts to the elected representatives of the party, both in the Upper House and in the Lower House of Parliament”, Wrote LNE.
To return to the current SG of the SDF, it is necessary to know that he is the regional president of his political party in the West. Born on December 20, 1968, he became the youngest Member of Parliament in 1997.
