Somaliland voters set for polls

Hargeisa – Somaliland will vote in a long-awaited presidential election on June 26 after a string of delays angered the opposition and worried rights groups, its electoral commission said on Thursday.

The spokesperson for the National Electoral Commission (NEC), Mohamed Ahmed Hirsi Ghelle, said the date just needed the president’s approval, which the leader indicated he would give.

“I will approve the date fixed by the National Electoral Commission,” President Dahir Rayale Kahin told reporters on his return from a three-week foreign visit.

The vote in the Horn of Africa Country has been delayed three times since April 2008, which clan elders blamed on problems with voter registration.

The Country has enjoyed relative peace and stability compared with Somalia but is frustrated by its total lack of international recognition as a sovereign state.

The former British colony will also mark 50 years of independence on June 26.
