Parliamentary elections were held in Cameroon on 24 April 1964. They were the first elections held after Southern Cameroons (also known as West Cameroon) became part of the country in 1961. The result was a victory for the Cameroonian Union in East Cameroon and the Kamerun National Democratic Party in West Cameroon.[1] However, the election was marred by severe irregularities.[2]
