About
On 9 February 2016, the Rift Valley Institute’s Rift Valley Forum will host a panel discussion launching the report of the study The Economics of Elections in Somaliland: The financing of political parties and candidates. After the November 2012 elections in Somaliland, candidates, political parties and political associations reported that spending on individual campaigns had sharply increased relative to spending in previous polls. Voters, politicians and parties expressed concern that the high cost of campaigning threatens the integrity of a fledgling electoral system. In response to these concerns, researchers working with the Rift Valley Institute conducted a study to examine sources of income and expenditures by candidates and political parties in Somaliland’s 2005 parliamentary and 2012 local council elections. The study’s findings have important implications for campaign finance regulation in Somaliland.

Moderator: Cedric Barnes, International Crisis Group

Panellists: Adan Abokor, Rift Valley Institute; Aly Verjee, Rift Valley Institute; Haroon Yusuf, Soradi and Amina Warsame, Network Against FGM In Somaliland

About
Contemporary elections involve ever-more modern technology. They are meant to protect what have become the fundamental principles of elections: the secrecy and singularity of the individual’s vote, the transparency of the ballot, the independence of the institutions supervising the elections.But these increasingly sophisticated elections come at a cost: when technology goes wrong, suspicions are quickly aroused.Have new technologies made elections more free and fair? Has this new apparatus transformed electoral behavior? The speakers on this panel, each one a specialist, will address these questions with regard to their own field of practice: from election polls, to electoral observation, to the organisation of elections.
