NPR Exclusive Program: The next election to pay attention to is in Somalia

Parliamentary and presidential elections are kicking off in Somalia in what will be yet another attempt at forming a lasting, all-inclusive government to help the country drag itself from the abyss.

Professor Abdi Ismail Samatar joined MPR News host Tom Weber in the studio, speaking on what this election means to Somali Americans, and how it will affect the Somali community in Minnesota.
