NEC Chair warns against minor registration, thanks staffers



The Chairman of the Somaliland Electoral Commission, the NEC Mr. Musa Hassan Yusuf, has once again warned that minors should not seek registration of voter cards at all.

He at the same time expressed his gratitude to the security forces who have been manning the registration centers in maintaining order and the staff of the NEC and said that they had to go through difficult circumstances during the registration process.

He gave the sentiments after touring and monitoring the ongoing voter registration exercises in Hargeisa which is about to wrap up in a couple of days.

He said, “I would like to express my gratitude to the Somaliland national security forces who have been manning the centers and I am grateful to the staff of the commission at all the regional, district and registration center levels who expedited their duties under difficult circumstances to see that the members of the public were registered countrywide as potential voters”.

He continued, “I am calling upon the people of Somaliland to take advantage of these two remaining days and observe the law and order given that under-age minors will not be allowed to register at all”.
