Cameroon's President Paul Biya was reelected for a sixth term with about 78 percent of the votes cast in the October 9 election, the country's supreme court said Friday.
Biya, who is 78 and has been in power for 29 years, beat long-time opposition leader John Fru Ndi who took just under 11 percent of the vote. A spokesman for Fru Ndi's party rejected the result and vowed to challenge it.
Turnout was 66 percent, down from the 2004 election where 83 percent of eligible voters turned out; and the one in 1997, 81 percent.
