Somaliland goes to vote. The long-awaited day arrived. It is the 8th time we are called to express our will: 3 Presidential elections, 2 local council elections, 1 parliament election, 1 constitutional referendum. Now a combined one that counts 2 for us.#mySomalilandGoesToVote

"Democracy in #Somaliland is a living organism, not a system built after foreign invasions, erected according to the prescriptions of think tanks and political consultants. It is old much older than its European cousins, lost in a distant past of nomadic freedom and independence" pic.twitter.com/WC463nzTqB
