Voting was underway in the central African country of Cameroon on Sunday with many expecting President Paul Biya to win again.
Mr Biya who has been in power for 36 years since 1982 was expected to win his seventh term in office.
Multiple outlets have reported a generally peaceful election with some violence recorded in the Anglophone area.
Anglophones form between 19 and 20 percent of the Cameroonian population and have been agitating for independence since late 2016.
Local newspapers said security was beefed up across the country and the turnout was said to be low.
The winner would run Cameroon for the next seven years.
