Somaliland LGA adopts new and more inclusive constitution

As the culmination of an intensive participatory process supported by VNG International through its Inclusive Decisions At Local Level (IDEAL) programme, the Association of Local Government Authorities of Somaliland (ALGASL) unanimously adopted a revised constitution during a Special General Assembly held on 9 April 2018. All of ALGASL's member districts participated.

Amongst others, the new constitution provides for a more inclusive composition of ALGASL’s governing bodies, such as mandatory female representation and representation from rural districts.

The Special General Assembly also marked the inauguration of 7 new member districts, which is an important step toward ALGASL’s financial sustainability and an indication of ALGASL’s increased legitimacy.
