Breaking – President Bihi met Abdikarim A Moge to Discuss Hargeisa Mayoral Seat

Mr. Ahdikarim Ahmed Moge, the winner of the most votes in the Hargeisa Local Council elections held on May 31st, 2021 has met with the President of the Republic of Somaliland HE Muse Bihi Abdi to discuss outstanding issues related to the mayoral race. Although Mr. Moge has won more than 26,000 votes, he still faces a political gauntlet of convincing the other 16 Council Members to elect him as the Mayor. President Bihi is the Chairman of the ruling party of Kulmiye.

An alliance between the two opposition parties of UCID and Waddani has cast a shadow over the prospect of Mr. Moge’s ambition to become a mayor. The opposition parties have won the most seat in Parliament and Local Council elections outperforming the ruling party of Kulmiye.

This morning, Mr. Moge held a press conference and called upon President Bihi and other political leaders to respect the will of the people and that he was not elected for anything less than the Mayor of Hargeisa.

Although the meeting between Mr. Moge and President Bihi was confirmed by sources in Somaliland Presidency, what they discussed and if they have reached an agreement is unclear. Political jockeying and horse-trading are still ongoing to fill other critical mayoral posts and the Speaker of the Parliament.

President Bihi and the National Election Commission has been praised widely for holding a free and fair elections who transparency was bolstered by the loss of the incumbent party.
