In his remarks, the presidential candidate of Kulmiye rulling party Hon. Muse Bihi Abdi has appealed the citizens to collect their cards in order to readily vote in the upcoming elections. Escorted by high delegation in the east regions of Somaliland, Hon. Bihi said, “Whether you are a stalwart supporter or not, I passionately and patriotically appeal you to collect your voter card.”
