Election Commission forwards Somaliland Presidential elections by one day
HARGEISA, 8, FEB 2003--Somaliland's Election Commission has moved forward the date for Presidential elections by one day in compliance with the constitution which demands the Presidential elections to be held one month before the expiry of the incumbent President's term of office.

In a letter to President Dahir Riyale Kahin, the Commission said it had slated the elections to be held on April 14 instead of April 15 as was the case previously. The President's tenure is due to expire on May 15 following the extension given to him and the Vice President by the Parliament.
