Hargeisa (SD) – Kulmiye party spokesman Abdinasir Muhumed Hassan Buni says Somaliland’s presidential election will not take place next year since the 10 year party permits will expire.
Buni claimed the election of Somaliland’s political parties will take place ahead of Somaliland’s presidential election, which is expected to take place on November 13, 2022, adding that the current parties Kulmiye, UCID and Wadani tenure will end next year.
“In 2022, the party licenses will expire and no presidential election could be held. The parties with expired permits can’t go to the polls and let all three parties be aware that we will hold the Guurti election, and the presidential election will follow,” Said Buni.
The licenses of the three parties, will expire in December 2022, preceding is the expiration of the Guurti on May of 2022, while the presidential election is scheduled for Nov. 2022.
The Political Associations Act stipulates that the opening must be implemented six months prior to the presidential election, allowing the three successful political parties to participate in the presidential election.
Kulmiye party’s plan is to hold the Guurti elections and the political parties ahead of the presidential election, making it easier for President Bihi to remain in power for an extended period of time.
Opposition parties have not yet commented on Kulmiye party’s controversial plans to extend President Bihi’s tenure.
