Somalia: Somaliland Consultation Council Hails Opposition Parties' Alliance

The Somaliland region's Council of Consultation and National Guidance Thursday (July 25th) praised an agreement reached between the two official opposition parties to form a united opposition to President Ahmed Mohamed Silanyo's Kulmiye party.

Leaders of the Justice and Welfare Party (UCID) and Wadani (the Somaliland National Party) signed a ten-point agreement outlining the terms of their political merger Wednesday in Hargeisa.

The council urged the two party leaders to formulate a clear political strategy to ensure Somaliland's progress and prosperity, according to a statement signed by council Chairman Hassan Guure Jama.
