Our democracy is maturingI support change! This is really good for our democracy. We need constructive opposition parties, with teeth (checks and balance). The lessons from Batuun and Mooge for any future candidate is that, if you spread your net wider, you have bigger chance of winning than if you just focused locally and the faces you know. It is the beginning of citizenship value based voting.
Who knows, with major commercial and infrastructural projects coming online soon like the Berbera Port, Free zone and Corridor, Berbera Airport, Maydh Jetty, Hargeisa Bypass and so on, Kulmiye stands a good chance of capitalising on an improving economic outlook. Meantime we will see how successful the Waddani UCID synergy turns out to be.Waddani has the best chance of winning.
What's interesting to see here is whether or not the ruling party decides to give governmental concessions to the opposition. After all, they could just strong-arm them you know? If that doesn't take place it means that SL has a true democracy. However, with such lackluster defense weapons they've failed to gain the strength necessary to protect their own people and that means that they're just foreign puppets.
