Bashe A. Gabobe Says Deposit For Political Parties Is Too Large

Hargeysa, Somaliland, July 23, 2011 (SL Times) – The campaign manager of Kulmiye party for the western regions in the last presidential election, Eng. Bashe Abdi Gabobe, said that requiring political parties to pay $25000 deposit for registration will eliminate a lot of people from participating in the political process and that, given the prevalent poverty in Somaliland, only those with high income will be able to form parties. Instead of asking for $25000, Bashe A. Gabobe suggested that a deposit of $5000 should be required.
Kulmiye had pledged during the last presidential that it will allow the formation of new political parties, and after consulting with the various constituencies, Kulmiye’s government had submitted to parliament its position that political parties should be allowed to be formed.
The law for the formation of new parties is now in the hand of parliament.
