In Florida, the CRC convenes every 20 years to hold public hearings around the state and then places amendments to the Florida Constitution directly on the ballot for voters’ decisions. After attending the session in Orlando, attorneys will take the CRC presentation to civic and community groups in their hometowns to teach about the commission and its work. Benchmarks presentations can be downloaded from The Florida Bar website. Attorneys receive CLE credit for making Benchmarks presentations: one ethics credit hour for each presentation for up to three presentations in a three-year reporting period.

Cameroon promises safe elections despite violence in anglophone regions

first_imgCameroon’s government vowed Wednesday that next month’s presidential election will be peaceful and voting will take place nationwide, despite mounting bloodshed in the central African country’s restive anglophone regions.“The October 7 presidential election will be held in a calm and serene environment throughout our country,” minister of territorial administration Paul Atanga Nji said on state radio, citing reports by regional governors.Cameroon’s two minority English-speaking regions — the North-West and South-West — have been hit by almost daily acts of violence that have left more than a hundred people dead and about 200,000 displaced since late 2016.The anglophone separatists have said that voting will not take place in the two regions next month.“The head of state has instructed the governors to take the necessary measures to ensure that the election goes ahead in all of Cameroon’s 360 districts,” Atanga Nji said after meeting with the governors of the country’s 10 regions on Monday and Tuesday.He added that President Paul Biya had instructed the governors to “ensure the protection of all the candidates”.Years of resentment at perceived discrimination at the hands of Cameroon’s majority French speakers led to anglophone militants making a symbolic declaration of independence last October 1, which led to a government crackdown.Since the start of the crisis, a total of 109 members of the police and security forces have been killed, according to government figures.Even the start of the school year was marred by violence earlier this month, with the separatists calling for a boycott. Several teachers and students were abducted and one teacher was killed in Bamali in the North-West.In the October poll, eight candidates will run against the 85-year-old incumbent Biya, who has ruled the country for 35 years and is seeking a seventh straight term in office.Related Burundi Elections:Presidential vote proceeds despite violence Cameroon imposes curfew in restive anglophone regions Cameroon’s army denies alleged atrocities in restive anglophone regions Cameroon’s President Paul Biya is seen at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters in New York City, U.S. September 22, 2017.
