This report examines the process through which the 2012 elections were held. It highlights challenges that faced major stakeholders, and reflects upon the Academy for Peace and Developmentā€™s (APD) sustained efforts to analyse these challenges and help devise mechanisms to overcome them. Finally, the report identifies a number of lessons that Somaliland must learn from these elections, not just for the sake of the democratization process but also for Somalilandā€™s long-term political health.
