The Republic of Cameroon is a multiparty presidential regime which is structured on the French model. Under this model, power is distributed among the President who is the Head of State, the Prime Minister, the head of government and the Cabinet ministers. Democratic transformation began in Cameroon in 1990, at the end of the Cold War and following the arrest of the former chairman of the Cameroon Bar Association, Yondo Black, and nine of his associates who attempted to set up a new political party. The subsequent trial before a military tribunal and accompanying reports in the private press accelerated the democratization process, as did the founding of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) in the English-speaking part of the country. Universal suffrage and the right to campaign for election are provided by the constitution to every citizen.
