Hargeisa (SD) – Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi has rejected the reappointment of Hassan Yusuf Duale to rejoin the Somaliland Election Commission.
The UCID Representative has resigned his position amid the political tension surrounding the committee’s legitimacy prior to the EU led agreement.
Its not clear what president Bihi relied on in rejecting the UCID appointee, but its clear Mr. Duale’s resignation caused the collapse of the Kulmiye supported commission.
UCID officials didn’t respond to the rejection and its not known what their next move will be.
Somaliland is to have its long awaited parliamentary and local elections at the end of 2020.
