Ifiye and Youth Organizations have filed a joint complaint against the Puntland Transitional Electoral Commission with Puntland President Said Abdullahi Deni, informing the international community.
The three organizations described the pilot election as unconstitutional in Puntland and to the satisfaction of donors.
They called for the completion of the Supreme Court, the abolition of the closed list system for local council elections and the Deni administration’s offer for registered political associations.
The three parties proposed a conference of political parties to address the lack of transparency in the Puntland Transitional Electoral Commission.
The three parties see the TPEC election as a test case and will not be defeated because unregistered associations in all Puntland-controlled districts will not have political legitimacy.
