First Local Elections in Puntland since 60s

If they hold elections just for the sake of getting some money from the donors like Somaliland, then they are doomed.

Rather than 'Gole Deegaan' which in turn selects the mayor, they should demarcate wards and neighborhood first and elect the mayor directly. We will be watching whether Puntland intends to give the people voice or window dressing .

If it was this 'easy,' maxaa dowladda dhexe loogu diiday qof iyo cod? Sheeko meesha lagu haayaa.

 The worse part the current selection in federal will last well beyong the same mandate for one man one vote schedule

Boqolkiiba 12 waa xumaadeen kulahaa. Sheekooy sheeko. 

Excellent move by Puntland, this is will give people to experiment and learn governing by the peoples votes. And surprisingly 1/3 of elected Council members are women.

I think only the number of local Councillers is quite excessive, 27 council members for a town of 5000 people, might lead to overkill as all these councillers might expect benefits, influence and status.

Well Mr. Arafaat had nailed it. This is the first lesson that must be learned from this election. Reduce the councilmen to three for a town of that size.

27 kulahaa, meeshu ma baarlamaanbaa.
