Civil society observes Somalia’s 2016 electoral process
Civil engagement in Somalia’s electoral process is the first step towards public oversight, transparency and accountability. In turn, it generates public confidence in the credibility and integrity of the electoral process and its outcome. In fact, one success story of the 2016 electoral process – regardless of the uneven process – is the active engagement of domestic observers despite the very challenging political and security environment. Denmark through its partnership with Saferworld is supporting Puntland Non State Actors Association (PUNSAA) and Somalia South Central Non State Actors (SOSCENSA), to observe the ongoing 2016 electoral process in Somalia.
