The Constitutional Court of Somaliland has confirmed the narrow re-election of President Dahir Riyale Kahin, increasing his margin from 80 to 217 votes.
No doubt Kahin will have to endure allegations that he was "selected, not elected" for the remainder of his term, but KULMIYE's best course is probably to accept the court's ruling, explore Kahin's suggestion of a national unity government and attempt to forge alliances with other opposition parties.
Kahin, for his part, should keep in mind that the election was a statistical tie and that 58 percent of the voters chose someone other than him, and negotiate with KULMIYE in good faith.

President Riyale should not be allowed to take the country to a war of his own choice whose objective is to divert public attention from the crises in the country to prolong his regime or to a war without assured victory but defeat.
Dahir Riyale Kahin and his conspiratorial associates in the abused power represent immoral, disgraceful and corrupt regime for continuously stealing millions of dollars from public funds for personal enrichment, for rigging elections, and for creating inter-clan tensions while the country is under threat.
The destructive actions of president Riyale and his henchmen are much louder than their misleading, deceitful words, comments, and speeches to divert public attention from what is happening in the country.
