LEGAL FRAMEWORK

Somaliland’s Constitution firmly guarantees all fundamental rights and freedoms, including that every citizen who fulfils the requirements of the Law (Law No. 91/2020) has the right to vote and to be voted for a public office. In order to vote at any given election a citizen should be a registered voter as stipulated by the Voter Registration & Elections Act (Law No.91/2020).
The Somaliland National Electoral Commission (SL NEC) exercises its mandate and executes its duties under the Constitution and Law No. 91/2020 as well as Law No. 14/2021.
