Somaliland will postpone its scheduled presidential election to next year, rather than holding it in November when the incumbent president’s term ends.  The senate has extended President Muse Bihi Abdi’s current term of office by two years ahead of its expiry in November, the senate chairman said on Saturday.  

In August deadly protests broke out in the region with demonstrators demanding elections be held in November amid suspicions President Muse Bihi Abdi wanted to delay the poll and extend his term.
