Parliamentary elections were held in Cameroon on 1 March 1992. They were first multi-party elections for the National Assembly since 1964, although they were boycotted by the Social Democratic Front and the Cameroon Democratic Union.[1] The result was a victory for the ruling (and formerly sole legal party) Cameroon People's Democratic Movement, which won 88 of the 180 seats.[2] Voter turnout was 60.7%.[3]
