@NeXuS which party do you support

I support change! This is really good for our democracy. We need constructive opposition parties, with teeth (checks and balance). The lessons from Batuun and Mooge for any future candidate is that, if you spread your net wider, you have bigger chance of winning than if you just focused locally and the faces you know. It is the beginning of citizenship value based voting.

Waddani has the best chance of winning.
Who knows, with major commercial and infrastructural projects coming online soon like the Berbera Port, Free zone and Corridor, Berbera Airport, Maydh Jetty, Hargeisa Bypass and so on, Kulmiye stands a good chance of capitalising on an improving economic outlook. Meantime we will see how successful the Waddani UCID synergy turns out to be.

What's interesting to see here is whether or not the ruling party decides to give governmental concessions to the opposition. After all, they could just strong-arm them you know? If that doesn't take place it means that SL has a true democracy. However, with such lackluster defense weapons they've failed to gain the strength necessary to protect their own people and that means that they're just foreign puppets.

Strong-arm?
Foreign puppets?
Failed to protect their own people?

Are we talking about Somaliland or Somalia here?:notagain:
Please clarify your points as it's insightful.

International partners congratulate the people of Somaliland, political parties, the National Electoral Commission and other government institutions.


International partners congratulate the people of Somaliland, political parties, the National Electoral Commission and other government institutions on the successful conduct of the 2021 parliamentary and local council elections and on electoral security arrangements. Through these elections, the people of Somaliland have demonstrated a strong commitment to the electoral process, to political participation and to strengthening democracy.

We welcome in particular the historic election of minority groups to the House of Representatives and the large numbers of youth candidates elected. We recognise the significant achievements of female candidates during this electoral process, but deeply regret that this has not translated to more women in elected office resulting in decreased women political representation. It will be important for all stakeholders to learn from this, and for government, political parties and others to take actions to strengthen women’s political participation well in advance of future elections. We look forward to urgent and concrete steps from the new parliament and the government to ensure a fair representation of women in government and administration.

We remain committed to continuing our constructive cooperation to further democratisation and the inclusion of women and marginalised groups in Somaliland, and to support regular and timely elections at all levels of government. We look forward to strengthening our cooperation with the newly elected local councils and parliament, both on these issues and on other matters of mutual interest.
