The various council supervisory commissions in the Northwest Region have published the results of the 2013 municipal election, which shows none of the major political parties in the region actually dominating, though the CPDM won 16 down from 18, and the SDF 15 up from 14 councils of a total of 34 in the region. Both parties would jointly run 3 councils up from 2 in the last elction.

The results shows that the SDF still remains the dominant political party in urban areas while the CPDM continues to hold swell of rural areas in the Region. Both parties also made some incisive in roots into the other traditional strongholds. The CPDM won the Bamenda I and Bali Councils in Mezam while sharing the Santa council as the majority party. The Rulling party also swept all three councils in Ngoketuja, wrestling the Babessi council from the opposition.

In Bui Division the SDF comes back stronger this time, winning back the Jakiri, Nkum and Nkor/Noni councils from the CPDM. The SDF also won two of the four councils in Menchum, snatching the Zhoa and Fura Awah councils from the CPDM.

The CPDM succeeded to break the SDF’s hegemony in Nkambe winning the council after years of internal wrangling in the SDF camp, while the SDF on the other hand grasped Ako council.

Below is the full list of the 2013 municipal election result in the 34 council areas of the Northwest region.
