Horndiplomat-The UK’s Ambassador to Somalia David Concar said his government announced £27m of aid for electoral and constitutional reform in Somalia, Amb Concar said after meeting with Somalia’s National Independent Electoral Commission (NIEC).
Somalia has since held three polls. But regular Somalis are yet to cast any ballots. The country has relied on a clan-based formula in which the lawmakers were selected by the clan elders, and then the legislators elect the president.
“Somalia’s leaders have committed to holding a one-person-one-vote election in 2020, the nation’s 1st since 1969. Excellent update from the National Independent Electoral Commission (NIEC) Chair Halima Ismail Ibrahim &Commissioner Said Hashi Warsame.”Said Amb Concar
Meanwhile, The British Ambassador to Somalia announced his government supports the Somali’s 2020 election and Constitutional reform.
“The UK recently announced £27m of aid for electoral and constitutional reform in Somalia,” Said Ambassador said in a Twitter post on Saturday.

Last year, Somali political leaders agreed to scrap the clan-based formula in favor of a one person, one vote system. Somalia’s electoral body, the National Independent Electoral Commission (NIEC), hopes to make the change for the next elections in 2020.
