Nagaad held a women’s conference in Hargeisa to discuss how to support female candidates. After the conference, the participants released the following statement:-
As you all know, NAGAAD Network has been working for a long time on the quota issue in order to make sure that women are involved in the country’s decision making. NAGAAD has relentlessly worked on reinforcing a women’s quota bill to ensure that women have legitimate leadership and influence across all Somaliland institutions.
Unfortunately, however, the lower and upper houses have rejected the bill on establishing electoral quotas for women in local and parliamentary elections. As a result of this, NAGAAD held a women’s conference to discuss the challenges female candidates face and to collectively find solutions to those barriers. Some of the conference participants were candidates from the three political parties, journalists, lawyers, human rights advocates, and business women that came across all six regions.
The participants agreed on the following points:
