Somaliland leadership in Mogadishu announce terms and guidelines for Lower House elections

The leadership of the Somaliland caucus has released conditions and guidelines for the upcoming Lower House elections.

 

According to the terms of the election, a candidate must not be less than 25 years of age, has not been deprived of citizenship in the last five years and not served a jail term within a similar period. One must also hail from Somaliland.


Candidates who are not either outgoing parliamentarians or members of the executive will need to provide a certificate of good conduct from the police.

Candidates who are currently serving in the public service, disciplined forces or diplomats must submit their resignation letter to the Somaliland Indirect Elections team (SIET) seven days before the elections.

Voting will commence when there is a quorum of two-thirds of the delegates which translates to 76 out of the 101 delegates.

The Somaliland SIET is expected to announce the electoral timelines in the coming days.
