Somalia’s long-delayed presidential election is scheduled for Sunday.
After more than a year of delay, violence and uncertainty – Somalia is ready to vote for its next president.
The original plan was to hold one-person, one-vote elections for the first time in 50 years.
But security concerns and legal and financial realities make this difficult.
Instead, the Somali parliament will choose the president.
