Urging Somaliland Diaspora Communities in the UK, Europe, North America and Australia to Exercise Their Rights to Vote

The year 2024 has been marked by remarkable diplomatic achievements for the Republic of Somaliland, culminating in the adoption of the slogan “The Year of Recognition” by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & International Cooperation of the Republic of Somaliland. At the same time, 2024 is also the world’s biggest election year as more nations will head to the polls than ever before globally. National elections at different levels are taking place in the UK, Europe, USA, Canada, and Australia, alongside the 10th European Parliament Election, scheduled for June 6-9, 2024, and occurring in the major settlements of Somaliland Diaspora Communities including Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, France, Ireland, and the Scandinavian states.

Consequently, the Somaliland Diaspora Office calls for Somaliland dual nationals residing in the aforementioned countries to embrace their rights to vote and take this opportunity to enhance the positive national image of their country of origin. We urge all those dedicated dual national diaspora organizations, associations, committees, activists, and the die-hard Somalilanders in the diaspora to industriously act as goodwill ambassadors by positively lobbying their candidates and political parties to support the cause of independence and Somaliland’s vision for security, prosperity, and wellbeing of its citizens as well as contributing to a better world.

Fellow citizens, let us come together, collectively work harder, and make your voices heard, as we continue to strive towards a brighter future for the people of the Republic of Somaliland.
