Puntland Local Govt Polls Exemplary, Somalia's International Partners Say

Somalia’s international partners on Friday hailed the recently concluded local election held in the North-Eastern Somali regional state of Puntland. A joint press statement issued by UNSOM has shown that the international partners of Somalia have welcomed the enthusiasm shown by the population in Puntland. ''The international partners welcome the enthusiasm shown by the population of the districts of Qardho, Eyl and Ufeyn, as shown by the high number of voters who turned out,'' said a statement issued by the international partners. ''We look forward to the completion of additional voter registration and the roll-out of statewide local government elections in Puntland in 2022.'' the statement adds. Last week, Puntland conducted the local elections in the districts of Qardho, Ufeyn and Eyl. It was the first time in Somalia outside the breakaway region of Somaliland - that residents were able to elect their representatives directly in over 50 years. The historic move by the regional state was praised by various leaders in the country.
