  1. Is it not bit too early? Did they ask the current President if he is running for a second term? These guys must be too careful not flex their atrophic muscles too early.

  2. The current President has the right to run if he wishes so, but in the Convention venue. I believe he is now fed-up with the people of Somaliland who do not appreciate anything. I will support if he abstains from another term, unless we change and support our leader who left-no-stone-unturned to support his country. What this administration has done in 2 and 1/2 years, no government before them has done, and whoever comes after them, will never do it, but we are ungrateful people. We know how to criticise only, but we don't see things that this government has done within a short period of time.

    Any person who has a bit of patriotism can differentiate between this government and the one before. The change is great and continue to be achieved for the remain years of this President. I am sure he will not let those haters to discourage him.

    • Only the stupid and the few clannish-blinded do not appreciate what this administration and president have achieved in a very short period. I believe we have very bright future ahead of us and the president will not quit until he accomplishes everything Somalilanders aspire to.

      If he quits after one term, that will be a disaster for us, I hope he will not.

  3. The government department dealing with finance is called the Finance Ministry.The powers of a finance minister vary between governments. Sometimes the finance minister is the most powerful cabinet post.
