19. For how long do electoral registers stay open?

Electoral registers are permanent. They are revised every year throughout the national territory. The Director General of Elections Cameroon may, after obtaining the assent of the Electoral Board, order by decision, a thorough recompilation of the registers at the time of revision. However, annual revision or, where applicable, the recompilation of electoral registers is suspended from the date of convening the electors. In case of recompilation (see glossary), the Director General of Elections may also extend this period by no more than 3 (three) months.
