Somaliland to hold parliamentary elections in March 2005

afrol News / Awdal News Network, 19 May - Somaliland President Dahir Riyale Kahin announced on Tuesday that the long-awaited parliamentary elections would be held in March 2005. This constitutes the last step in the democratisation process of the still non-recognised country.

In a speech on the 13th anniversary of Somaliland's reclamation of sovereignty on 18 May, President Riyale said that parliamentary elections would complete the country's democratisation process.

Somaliland gained world admiration for holding successful and internationally applauded local council elections and presidential elections despite the lack of international recognition as a sovereign an independent state.

On the killing of a number of foreigners in Somaliland, President Riyale said that the investigations had shown that the aim of such criminal acts was to portray Somaliland as a home of terrorism and to scare off foreign investors against coming to Somaliland.

He urged the people to work with the government to safeguard the country's security and to deny what he called "Somaliland's enemies" the chance to harm the peace and stability of the country.

The Somalilander President further again called upon the African Union and the UN to extend Somaliland its due recognition "according to the charter of the UN," taking account of Somaliland's achievements.
