Somaliland's New President

World Politics Review published on 1 December 2017 an analysis titled "Can Somaliland's New President Steer It Toward International Recognition?" by Megan Iacobini de Fazio, a freelance writer based in East Africa.

Following the recent election of Somaliland's new president, Musa Bihi Abdi, the author noted that he is seen as a strong leader who will uphold the rule of law and fight corruption. Despite its challenges, Somaliland has made strides in establishing a stable, peaceful and relatively functional proto-state. But the author adds Bihi will have to demonstrate that he is capable of moving beyond a narrow definition of democratic success in order to make Somaliland more inclusive and equal for all its citizens.
