Cameroon high court rejects petition to annul 9 Oct polls

The 8-count petition was filed by eight of the 22 presidential candidates that competed against incumbent President Paul Biya.
They claimed that there were widespread irregularities, multiple voting, among other things in the recent polls which saw a low turn out of the 7 million Cameroonian registered voters.
