We have been saying all along that a political move in democratization by Puntland State would lead the way to free and elections in Somalia. It is happening today. It is the beginning of an era in Somalia’s politics, which heralds the overdue process of the rule of law and the power of the citizen. This will really have domino effect in the rest of Somalia.

The presence of the members of the international community and Somalia’s civil society as observers of these pilot elections in three districts of Puntland State is an indication of the overwhelming support and best wishes for the success of this gigantic endeavor by the people of Puntland State. It is a great step forward for the people of Somalia in a troubled nation.
