SOMALILAND ELECTION ROADMAP

introduction

Somaliland has held eight successful democratic elections, including three presidential elections (in April 2003, June 2010 and November 2017), two parliamentary elections (in September 2005, May 2021) and Three local council elections (in December 2002, November 2012 and May 2021). All aforementioned elections were conducted in a peaceful and inclusive manner, a very rare occurrence in this volatile Horn of Africa region, which is overwhelmingly dominated by long-sitting, undemocratic and authoritarian leaders.

Beyond that, in 2016, Somaliland conducted the most advanced voter registration processes in Africa, according to Abdikadir Iman Warsame, the former Chairman of the National Electoral Commission (NEC) of Somaliland, in which an iris-based biometric system was used for one of the first times anywhere in the world.
