Canada Parliamentarians praise Somaliland for presidential Election and security development


Horndiplomat-Chandrakanth “Chandra” Arya is a Canadian Liberal politician, who was elected to represent the riding of Nepean in the House of Commons of Canada in the 2015 federal election.

Mp Chandra arya posted on his facebook this statement  said.”Yesterday in the House of Commons I made a statement on Somaliland. The text from the speech reads as follows: “Mr. Speaker, I rise today to bring awareness to Somaliland, an autonomous region of northwestern Somalia with nearly four million residents. In the recent Somaliland elections, Muse Bihi Abdi was elected as president, the first Somaliland president to be voted in with a very good majority. The state introduced legislation to address gender-based violence, intending to significantly reduce the rising sexual violence rate. Somalilanders are optimistic the new president will strengthen the region’s democratic credentials and set itself on a more prosperous path. I would also like to thank the Somali-Canadian community in Ottawa for all of its hard work and contributions to the community, and for continuing to help foster the relationship between Canada and Somalia, including Somaliland.”Said Mp Chandra Arya.
