Among the reasons behind the delay of the elections is the lack of voter registration which started few weeks ago and will continue until Oct 2015.
Somaliland declared independence from Somalia on May 18 1991 after a bloody civil war that killed tens of thousands of civilians. The country has since had two presidential elections, one parliamentary election and three municipal elections.
Somaliland has its armed forces, police, national flag , own currency and banks.
