Nairobi, July 7, 2010 – The United States government commends the people of Somaliland, the National Electoral Commission (NEC), and the political parties for conducting a peaceful election on June 26. Reports indicate that the election proceedings were generally peaceful and orderly.

The high voter turnout indicates that the citizens of Somaliland are determined to exercise their rights. Observers indicate that the June 26 election process was largely free and fair.

The election marks an important milestone for the people of Somaliland. We congratulate the winner and commend the other candidates for their statesmanlike acceptance of the results.

The United States urges the people of Somaliland to sustain their efforts to see this process through to a peaceful conclusion, with the swearing-in of the winner in approximately thirty days.
