ARE THE ELECTIONS WORKING IN SOMALIA?

Elections for House of the People, which began on 1 November 2021 and are scheduled to end on 15 March,2022.The elections were first scheduled to end on 24 December 2021.

On 10 January 2022, Somali leaders announced they struck a deal to complete presidential and parliamentary elections by 25 February, after repeated delays that have threatened the stability of the country and bring more political crisis. On 25 February 2022, the presidential election was further postponed to 15 March in order to complete the election of the House of the People.The indirect polls were supposed to be held more than a year ago.After 30 years of civil war, are the elections working in Somalia?.The real answer remains unclear. 

.Somalia funding at risk over election delays: IMF.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) could halt funding to Somalia if elections in the country are postponed again, the global lender has said.The IMF has warned that it could stop its programme in Somalia in three months, a senior official told reporters.Somalia's polls are more than a year behind schedule, with voting for the lower house of parliament due to be completed by March 15,- a deadline many observers expect the country to miss.The IMF's programme in Somalia is due for a review in mid-May, but election delays mean that a new administration may not be ready to endorse planned reforms in time for sure.
