1. So you want to become the president of Somalia… and you feel ready to tackle the different challenges facing this post-conflict nation. Here is what to expect:
2. Welcome to Somalia, poor, corrupted, fractured, insecure with weak and under-developed institutions. The government apparatuses are ineffective and inefficient to carry the smallest imaginable task. Its people are tired, frustrated, humiliated, and deceived by unscrupulous businessmen and opportunistic tribal minded politicians. This has allowed them to mortgage their future and accept every promise from these pseudo-politician and witty clansmen. Read the rest of this entry
SOMALIA’S ‘FRAGILE STATE’ STATUS IS NOT A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION
Moment RESEARCH Consultancy
Global Somali Diaspora Peace Initiative – Four years ago Somalis in the homeland and in the Diaspora were looking forward to a change of government and the end of the transitional government in Somalia. What the Somali Federal Government, the successor to the former Transitional Federal Government, has so far achieved by reluctantly or partially facilitating formation of federal states is not as noteworthy as the monumental failure to reduce dependency on AMISOM and create nation-wide security forces, an inclusive army and pave the way for one-person-one-vote elections in 2016.
According to Michael Keating, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of United Nations for Somalia, “the population has low expectations of and little faith in government. In many areas, Al Shabaab is more effective in providing security and rule of law – albeit their own brutal version – than government.” Keating’s predecessor, Nicholas Kay, argued that “Somalia”.
As Sir Professor Paul Collier of Oxford University’s Blavatnik School of Government has argued recently “fragile states are the epicenter of human tragedy“, where people lead miserable lives in an environment in which they are not safe. A fragile state “is a nightmare for others.” Is the Somali Federal Government to blame for not holding one person, one vote elections? In a fragile state “elections do not work and power does not turn into legitimate authority”, says Professor Collier. Read the rest of this entry

Critical factors to be considered in Somalia’s 2016 election
October 15 , 2015 – Global Somali Diaspora – Somalia has been in political turmoil for the last 25 years, and the successive governments in the country did not make the desired progress due to poor leadership, massive corruption in the government and the adoption of clan based policy leading to frequent dispute and distrust among government sectors, leaders and regional administrations. As Somalia is in the process of determining of which electoral system to be adopted in 2016, Global Somali Diaspora hereby presents the following three suggestions that, we think, are decisive for fair and free election in Somalia in 2016.
⦁ The 4.5 method that has been used for the last 16 years systematically denied the constitutional rights to be a full citizen of large number of Somali citizens, while it provides excessive power to some groups. As a result, we have witnessed a significant distrust to the government by ordinary Somalis who feel excluded. Therefore, as 4.5 system markedly failed to promote equality and unity, the country should move to an alternative system in 2016 where members of the parliament are selected through regional\district based process. This method will take the country one-step forward from clannism and 4.5 based system, to ‘one man one vote’ election.
⦁ The country has experienced a barefaced corruption by top government officials and indications pointed that one of the factors motivating the corruption is individual’s\groups’ strong desire to come-back to power in the next election. This is partially motivated by members of parliament’s vulnerability to bribery from presidential candidates where parliamentarians’ vote often go in favor of the candidate who pay most amount of cash, and not to those who can deliver best to the nation. Consequently, instead of focusing on nation building, government officials may concentrate looting public funds to save enough money for the next election; a behavior that has become a norm in both regional and central governments of Somalia. Nowadays, we have been witnessing individuals who are announcing their candidacy for Somalia’s president in 2016 including former and/or current regional and national presidents, prime-ministers, ministers and diplomats; the very people who were, in several reports, indicted in corruptions of millions of public money. The potential risk of bribery in the 2016 election cannot be ignored because it will not only encourage a cycle of corruption in the government, but also the worst scenario is the potential of ‘Alshabab terrorist’ to buy the presidential position to a proxy leader, and indirectly rule the country in the following years. The use of corruption in the 2016 election will be catastrophic to the international security, national instability, reconciliation process and it may hinder Somalia from any desired progress. To avoid this to happen, the voters should be larger in number and more inclusive than the 250 members of parliament. Critical mass of people should be allowed to vote such as members from the civil society, parliamentarians, women groups, intellectuals, students and youth organizations. This strategy will make the number of people voting too large to be bribed and there is a high chance that people will be more diverse, hence, more nationalistic than corruptive.
