It’s exactly three years and 2 months  since Kulmiye party led by Ahmed. M.M. Silanyo the current president have won the Somaliland’s Presidential Election in a land slide. After being an effective opposition party for 8 years – whom was very popular among S/l youth, women, intellectuals,  and businesspeople in the diaspora and in the Country too. Hence, Kulmiye was a very powerful even as a opposition … owing to the highly educated, experienced and a formidable leader which was and still respected and admired by everyone inside and outside of the country.

As soon as Kulmiye came to office in June 2010 President Ahmed Siilanyo with his team of cabinets  has carried out  a wide range and pre-planned government policies, and initiatives to sort out the economic mess and huge debt  left behind by the previous administration under Dhair Riyaale .

When Udub party handed over power to Kulmiye public moral was very low, police and arm forces have not being paid for months the economy was stagnated and the country was virtually paralased.  In his first week at office Siilanyo have summoned all Somaliland’s  academics, civil society groups and well known business leaders for consultation on how to salvage the economy and pay public service employee such as the police, arm forces and government staffs.  In all fairness to Kulmiye party  led by right honourable  Mr Ahmed Siilanyo … Somaliland economy is booming, public moral is all time  high and Somalilanders in diaspora have gained the trust and confidence to bring forward investments into their country.

Infrastructure of the country is increasingly expanding and transforming as infrastruction is essential for economy to function and very important term for judging a country. Equally, a significant shift in  agriculute practices has accurred during press Silanyo’s tenure in response to Kulmiye’s pre-planned policy. Not to mention the most desirable recent  ranks on military and police forces.

More over, Mr Silanyo’s government has created and developed a policy framework based on Community cohesion and mutual partnership where local people are empowered and encouraged to serve their local Communities  in order to develope social partnership between the authority and local citizens –  So much  so that local people are encouraged to participate and make a differences to their local Communities by cleaning up their streets, neighbourhoods  and also helping their police forces to eliminate crime and the root causes of crime such as human trafficking, substances misuse and terroism,

In summery, Kulmiye party attempted  to create an ideal society with ideal economy and over all ideal standard of living. Which they already  have accomplished substantially and will continue to improve if given a second term.

As for the up coming Somaliland Election we are very confident that Kulmiye party is the only credible candidate party ready to serve another second term, partly due to the fact that opposition Parties are, squabbling, divided and incompetent, beside the ruling party and mainly because these visible  development factors that we’ve mentioned above.
