Somalia's Upcoming Elections

The Heritage Institute for Policy Studies (HIPS) published in August 2016 a briefing on the Somali electoral process by Abdirashid Hashi, executive director of HIPS.

The election for Somalia's Upper House is scheduled to take place on 25 September 2016, the 275-member Lower House from 24 September to 10 October, and the presidential election on 30 October 2016. All persons will be elected indirectly; the hoped for popular election has been postponed at least until 2020.
