§ Mrs. Spelman
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what international election observers were present at the recent parliamentary and municipal elections in Cameroon; and if she will make a statement on the outcome of the elections. 
§ Mr. Straw
I have been asked to reply.
The Commonwealth, Francophonie, UN and OAU all had election observer teams in Cameroon at the time of the municipal and legislative elections.
We are concerned at early indications of procedural irregularities in the elections, and now await both the official results of the elections and the reports of the observer missions.
