Clannish opposition Parties can’t criticize a lopsided Government

Hargeisa(SD)-Somaliland Opposition parties have a long way to go if they’re to criticize the power sharing deficit government of Muse Bihi Abdi.

The Wadani and to certain extend  the lost UCID parties in Somaliland have a power sharing issues themselves, and it’s hurting their credibility.

Specially Wadani party with it’s clan based support and ideology is hindering the calls for more equal Somaliland.

A devastating example was when both eastern and western Somaliland regions were calling equal seat sharing in the next parliament, Mr. Irro was only interested in getting more electoral commission members.

A very disappointed advocate of parliamentarian reform and the speaker of the house Bashe Mohamed along with Awdelites worked with the House of representative’s law advisor in finding ways to defeat the three party agreement in August of this year.

The opposition parties failure to recognize the needs of the marginalized provinces were forced to side with the ruling party over the election issues, the opposition won’t get what they want either,  was their sentiment.

Wadani and it’s clan based policies will not make headway in bringing change in Somaliland unless they demonstrate to all Somalilanders including Kulmiye supporters that they could represent everyone.

If the Somaliland opposition parties can’t get their collective acts together on this, Somalilanders may be forced to find other alternatives, and it may not be pretty., hence the formation of rebel groups.

  1. It is the tribal system and short sighted clanish opion in Somaliland and Somalia that conspicously portrays the adoption of healthy, healthy state system as all ugly, insecure and untristworthy.
    Practical application of healthy, tested and structured process of modern state building process, adoption good governance practices, proportional allocation of seats in local councils and parliament, evaluation if elected MPs and officials of the executive, fiscal accountability and transparency of government to voters, is truely challenging. Somaliland could be adopted internationally as a unique case and a successful prototype of African nation crafting a modern, operational state in reality, with no or limited external support to such a glorious effort. Despite their beautiful achievement, the new nation, since its birth in 1991, has been challenged and threatened by three monstrous demons: Politicised tribal demands and Qaad (a mild stimulant plant from ethiopia) and myopic regional and global politics.
