The Collapse of UDUB and the Seismic Paradigm Shift Sweeping Somaliland

The Collapse of UDUB and the Seismic Paradigm Shift Sweeping Somaliland

"people often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true, Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote-a very different thing."  Walter H. Judd

"After this president election, Somaliland recognition is no longer a request, it is an earned right which the world must endorse."
 The clouds of change for the better is hanging over Somaliland. The celestial bodies are showing the smell of a huge Kulmiye victory. Somalilanders are showing their tremendous thirsty for a peaceful transfer of power. Kulmiye's long struggle to effect change in the country is finally on the very verge of bearing fruit. Kulmiye is becoming the new kid on the block. Somaliland presidential election fever is moving in all cylinders. Kulmiye party is emerging as the leading party in the country. UCID seems also to be taking the 2nd slot, and UDUB party is taking a distant third position. In the election rallies thousands of people are turning out to support Kulmiye party. Kulmiye party supporters are coming out with huge energy, enthusiasm and excitement. During their presidential rallies through the country, they are coming out in the thousands waving Somaliland and kulmiye flags, election paraphernalia, and slogans. Some of the Kulmiye supporters draw elections slogans on their faces and some of them wear clothes decorated with Kulmiye insignia. The world is watching this great election contest with great enthusiasm. Last week many UDUB officials jump the ship and hastily joined Kulmiye. Kulmiye membership growth for the last month is unprecedented. Everyday a new Somaliland group are leaving UDUB and joining Kulmiye. Nobody may know the exact outcome of the election, but if what were are seeing the last few weeks is a guide, Kulmiye party may be heeding to a landslide victory. The day president Rayaale may have wish if he would have resigned long time ago is around the corner. What is happening in Somaliland is a great example for all the Horn and all of Africa for the matter. 

The presidential contest is taking place as it happens in the established democracies of the west. Somalilanders have shown their maturity and the transition from fragmental tribal society to a cohesive and pluralistic society is in full swing. The overwhelming Kulmiye support in Awdal, Salel and Gabiley speaks to a sign of political maturity. The time people vote for somebody simply because of his/her tribal affiliation is over. A new dawn is casting a bright day light in Somaliland. Following the successful holding of the coming 26 June elections, Somaliland will embark in an irreversible and irrevocable route where the so-called international community is forced to succumb to Somaliland demands for full recognition for their hard won sovereignty. Somaliland recognition is no longer a request it is an earned right which the world must endorse. With two successful presidential elections under her belt,  Somaliland will start a new dawn.   

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." Thomas Jefferson
