A High court in Hargeisa has dismissed a civil case filed by a group of political parties to contest the decision by the political associations and parties Registration & Approval Committee (PPR&VC).
The case which had been filed by a cluster of parties namely UDHIS, NDB, HORYAAL and jamuuhiriga were part of the nine out of fifteen political organizations which failed to qualify verification and approval process hence their disqualification from the process.
The chairman of the High Court Prof. Yusuf Ismael Ali while reading the court’s ruling said that with all due respect, we hereby find no evidence of the irregularities in the qualification process contrary to what was alleged by the disqualified political parties.
The Chairman of Jamhuuriga Mr. Ahmed Sandoon Hassan told reporters that the ruling by court today was unfair the process in which the un-elected registration commission selected the political parties was flawed, questionable and un-democratic, and it could undermine our fledgling democracy.
On 20th April, 2012, the political associations and parties Registration & Approval Committee (PPR&VC) had announced the verification results which revealed that only 6 of the 15 new political associations have qualified by fulfilling all requirements set by the Committee.
This has prompted an outright rejection and denunciation of the results by all the nine political associations that failed to make the approved list, which created a tense atmosphere in the national and regional capitals.
