According to the constitution of Cameroon, the President of the Republic can request for the prorogation of the mandate of parliamentarians.

If the approval is granted by the Senate, the President will table the necessary bill which will be subjected to a  senate vote during this June session of parliament.

As a result, Cameroonians will be voting just for municipal and presidential elections scheduled for ending 2018.
