SOMALILAND PARLIAMENT – Standing Rules of the Two Houses

 Both Houses of Parliament (the House of Representatives and the House of Elders) have their own Rules of Procedure and a set of Rules which govern joint sittings, which are permitted under Article 38 of the Constitution.

The Rules in Somali are set out below: 

1.  THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:

CORRECTION 18 July 2017

The new (and somewhat controversial in the beginning in 2014) House of Representatives Rules of Procedure have been made been made  available recently at the Somaliland House of Representatives website and are available here as a pdf file in Somali (Somaliland DRAFT  HoR Standing Rules (Xeerhoosadka Golaha Wakiilada  Lr 12/2014) BUT as we have now confirmed these are NOT YET IN FORCE. We apologise for any confusion this might have caused and are keeping this copy for information.

The House Rules  remain  still the 2006 Rules which are the Revised House of Representatives Standing Rules (adopted on 2 January 2006)- [pdf copy of the Rules ] - all in Somali - no English langauage translation is available0.

 [In 2006, Somalilandlaw.com drafted  new suggested Rules of the House which incorporated  all the 2006 HoR Rules. The draft  Rules were based on those of Houses of Representatives in presidential systems of government, and in particular, those of the Philippines, the US and some South American countries, but were  also very much grounded on the Somaliland Constitution and customs].

2. THE HOUSE OF ELDERS: The House of Elders Standing Rules.

3. JOINT SITTINGS OF BOTH HOUSES: The Rules Relating to Joint Sittings. (below)
