HARGEISA – Somaliland’s Ministry of Education announced on Monday (Nov 6) that all schools and universities across the country will be closed from November 7th – November 15th, as the country gears up for the presidential election on November 13th.

Ahmed Abokor Ahmed, Director General of the Education Ministry, said the decision to temporarily shut down schools and universities was made after receiving a request from the National Electoral Commission (NEC).

Ahmed says the NEC requested for the closures because many schools and universities will be used as polling stations on November 13th.
